Any update or timeline on the area measurement tool rounding to a unit smaller than the nearest acre? tenth or hundredth, etc?

    Hi,
    This request is on the list, specifically to add tenths when measuring small polygons. We won't go past that because it would imply precision that isn't available. If you need accurate measurements to hundredths of any acre you should look at professional survey tools, CalTopo is probably not the right tool to that degree of precision.

    Best,

    No problem! We just don't want to imply a level of accuracy that doesn't represent real world measurements.

    Best,
