Comparison of various methods of measurement of area

Building constructions, buildings and structures

This article submits known and less common methods of measuring the actual areas of land plots, based on the use of various geodetic instruments and applications of computer programs. The main goal of this work is to conduct the benchmarking study of these methods. There were considered ways of measuring the actual area of land plots used directly in-situ, as well as ways based on the processing of satellite images and maps. The article contains a brief description of each method, taking into account their main features, and also revealed the advantages and disadvantages of using these methods. The estimation of precision was made by determining the percentage divergence of the area value obtained by a particular method with the value taken for the standard. Summary tabulation was made based on the results of the study
