WHERE CAN I FIND A PROGRAM TO FLY A PERIMETER TO FIGURE SQUARE ACRES
If you are trying to measure a land area, try using the measuring tools in Google Earth.

If that isn't what you want, can you rephrase your question so people understand exactly what it is you are wanting to do?

You can do that with Lichti. Plan a Mission using the Online Mission hub at Mission Hub - Litchi
Then the distance traveled is shown between waypoints.
Or in total.

Here is a quick mission I created to illustrate this.
You can read the feet that the drone will fly between waypoints.
In this example the drone flies 0.2 miles or 1056 feet x 836 feet which equals
Square Footage=882816 ft2Square Yards=98089.68576 Yd2Square Meters=82016.254848 m2Acres=20.266670 acre

Does anybody have an option for when on the fly?

I work with wildfire and want to use my drone to report to Disbatch fire size. Being a wildfire I don’t have time to upload to a computer and calculate data or use google maps since it shows me Unburned area. Thanks.

You can save and download the kml data from Airdata to Google Earth.

Thanks for the info. It worked great and I was able to upload my flight plan to our agency mapping app. Is there a way for it to work offline though?
