Ive seen it a number of times now in pictures where guys use like a form of google maps to calculate the service area of properties. Im wondering what it is called? I would like to look into it. Thanks

go to "freemaptools.com". Click on area calculator using maps. When that opens up, type in an address and click search. I like to undo the markers. You drop points around the driveway and house and then around the lawn perimeter and it gives you an acreage and sq. ft. measurement. Much faster than google earth and it's free
