What can I measure with SiteRecon?

- This is the list of 18 property features you can measure on SiteRecon - https://www.notion.so/Types-of-feature-731dc79b05404a0fa4e153efcf722d6b
- Higher-order features such as surface area of shrubs, slop of turf and height of trees are measured on request.
How accurate is it?
- Map outlines are accurate within 7 cms of their actual position on the ground. Measurement numbers are extracted using these map outlines.
- You can get similar accuracy from a property survey is someone moves the measuring wheel exactly along the boundary of the parking lot on the property. And then repeat the exercise of turf, beds and all other features that you measure
