Google Maps Geometry Tools

Tim Lauer, an elementary school principal in Oregon has posted several comments on eSchool News' ed-tech Insider blog regarding use of Google Tools in the classroom. I'm going to post a series of his remarks here, along with links to the actual posts.

" The folks at Acme Labs have created a great Google Maps tool called Areometer. Areometer is a web tool that utilizes the Google Maps API and allows you to plot the area of a polygon on a Google Map. For example, I used the interface to find my school, Lewis Elementary, and clicked my way around the perimeter of our playground to discover that the area of our playground is roughly 9.5 acres."
