Question from R:

I am having a land of 16 irregular sides i know all the length of the sides how to calculate the
area of the land
please mail to me

thanking you

Unfortunately if your property has more than three sides then you need more than the lengths of the sides to calculate the area. If you also have the bearings of the sides you can use an Excel spreadsheet we have developed to find the area.
