Area Estimator


Calculating the area of an irregular lot can prove a challenge for even the most geometrically-gifted appraiser. WinTOTAL provides a simple utility to estimate areas using the “average side” method.  To use the area estimator…

  1. Anywhere in WinTOTAL, place your cursor in the field you’d like to contain the results of your calculation.
  2. From the menus, select Tools, Area Estimator.
  3. Select the desired units (Feet/inches, meters, miles) from the Units for sides drop-down menu.
  4. Select the units for the result (Sq feet, Acres, Sq meters, Sq miles, Sq kilometers) from the Units for area drop-down menu.
  5. Enter the first measurement in the available box and press Enter or click Add Side.

  6. Continue entering additional sides until all dimensions have been entered. The Estimated Area is calculated as you add sides and displayed in the Estimated Area box.
  7. Click OK to place the calculated area into your form.
    • If you make an error in one of the dimensions, click Clear all sides to start over.
    • At any time, you can select different Units for area.
