How can I make this Measuring tool more useful

I know many of you have used this tool in the past and I was getting ready to go back and try and make it better. Would it be better

1) if you could add extra polygons (more than one area at a time)
2) if we tried to calculate how much Product you need?

A lot of people use it daily so I thought we'd try and improve on it. Like you all's feedback

I have never used your service. I have used others. I will look into your service. If you can not remove the trees, can you locate the corners of the property.

sorry I thought you were speaking tongue in cheek, I didn't realize there was software out there that would remove the trees from view (I assume like igolawn?) Our service is just a free tool that we provide to say thanks to all the Pros out there, I'll look into to locating property lines and or removing trees.

Do you mind saying who does this so I can take a look? Like I said this isn't our main business but I know a lot of Pros use it and so i was trying to decide what to work on next to make it better.

it is pretty amazing though. I met the founder of keyhole software (who google bought to start doing this). I use this every day and it's hard to imagine what life was like before tech like this.

I can't believe that there is any practical way to remove trees other than what I said above. To define property lines would be an impossible task. If igolawn does it I would like to see it.

No I am not aware of any software that removes the trees. Removal of the tree foliage would make it more useful to see fences, sheds or other things to help determine the property line. Or to see driveways etc. CL&T might have the answer to that problem ( satellite images in winter). I find these services great. The only problem I have is that on some properties a lot is obscured by the foliage.

I go lawn removes foliage. They also define the property lines.

But they're expensive
