Discovered a really neat app at the iTunes Store yesterday called "measure your land". It is free. Uses google aerial maps and you can measure distances around your fields/paddocks or acreage. Very simple and cool.

It would be great if the google maps were up to date or if you could change years photos taken. I down loaded planimeter for the smart phone but have not had the chance to see if it can measure pastures acreage.

I have been using ArcGIS Explorer to map our land. They have a free app with which you can view maps you created using their website. Much more than just a measurement tool, but it does that too.

NRCS has Web Soil Survey that allows you to view maps, select polygons, and such. It has the advantage of giving you soil data if you are not familiar with the fields or if you want to break on soil type boundaries. It is an internet tool and not an app.

Finally got an iPhone (wife's old iPhone 5) to use a measuring app.
Would like one that uses GPS to mark location.
Anyone with experience using one of these apps?

My brother uses a App that you can drop your pins where you stand and seems to like it well enough. Not much help from me as I haven't used it but thought I'd share anyway.

Area Calculator for Land (Area Finder Pro) by CHS Systems
https://appsto.re/ca/_gGMy.i

Myself I use another App but as far as I know you can't drop pins using current location... But I never really tried.

Planimeter - Measure Land Area and Distance on a Map by Core Signals
https://appsto.re/ca/iNFpz.i

Hope the links work, not much help anyway as I don't have much experience with dropping pins like you want to.
