Abstract:Area determination is often necessary on various types of studies encountered in forest investigation. Because of the limited methods generally available, often the area determination phase of such studies is more painstakingly and expensively done than is necessary. The writer introduces a new area determination technique which is simple in theory and which is now enjoying considerable success on a project where formerly the planimeter was used.
