Find Lot Size Paid FAQ

Q: What are the main differences between the paid version and the free version of Find Lot Size?

A: The free version is at findlotsize.com and uses Apple Maps. It is lower resolution in most cases, and thus lower accuracy measurements. A careful measurement's error is 1.0 to 3.0% for area and 0.1% to 0.5% for perimeter with Apple Maps.

     The paid version is at findlotsize.com/paid and uses Google Maps. Google Maps tend to have a higher resolution and thus higher accuracy. A careful measurement's error is 0.5% or better for both area and perimeter.

     Satellite images for Apple Maps are taken at different times than Google Maps, so they may be more or less helpful, depending on your situation.



Q: Is Google Street View available for the searched address or place?

A: Yes, usually. Drag the "Stickman" in the bottom right corner of the map to a "blue line" on the map to display a nearby Street View.



Q: Can I save or load a measurement like the free version?

A: No, not at this time. In the future, this may be a feature.



Q: Can I share my measurement with a friend like the free version?

A: No, not at this time. In the future, this may be a feature.



Q: Can print my measurement in a formatted way other than a screenshot?

A: No, not at this time. In the future, this may be a feature.



Q: Can I find latitude and longitudes with this paid service like the free version? Does it confirm the address like the free version?

A: No, not at this time. In the future, this may be a feature.



Q: Is there still a Google advertisement on the left-hand-side of the page for this paid version like the free version?

A: Yes. In the future, there may be a way to get rid of the ads for an additional fee.



Q: Why do the measurement credits expire after 180 days?

A: If Google raises the price of their API calls for map loads and geocoding searches, the price of the measurement credit must reflect this. If Google significantly raised their prices and customers waited to spend their credits, Find Lot Size would have a liquidity issue.


Q: The transaction ID I got from PayPal does not match the transaction ID I got from the Find Lot Size alert receipt, why?

A: PayPal has different transaction IDs for the buyer and seller, strangely enough. The transaction ID you see from the PayPal ID confirmation email is your buyer transaction ID, and is not too helpful. The more helpful ID is the seller transaction ID, which is repeated back to you in the Find Lot Size alert receipt after the purchase, as well as populated into all Transaction ID fields.


Q: I lost my transaction ID by clearing my browser settings, etc. and I still have credits on it, what do I do?

A: Contact Us with the email address you used to purchase the credits and we will respond within 24 hours with your Transaction ID.


Q: When I try to complete an enclosed perimeter or area shape, I cannot place the last marker near my first marker. How is this done?

A: Drop the marker in a region nearby. Pick up this last-dropped marker by tapping and holding it, then dragging it on top of the first marker you dropped. You will have a near-perfect match-up.


Instructions:

Click the map to drop a pin. Change a pin's location by clicking and dragging the pin. Use Clear Markers and Remove Last Marker to make edits. Search for a place with the search bar. Accessing your current location is not available.


Statement on accuracy:

A careful measurement's error is only around 0.5% in perimeter and area. These error numbers were found by measuring a NFL football field, like Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, OH. The regulation length with end zones is 109.728 meters, the width is 48.758 meters, and the area is 5351 square meters, or 1.32 acres.
