# Area Calculator - Land Calculator

The **area calculator** converts **acres**,
**square miles**,
**square footage**, **square yardage**,
**hectacres** and **square meters **of a given
area. This calculator is also perfect as a **land calculator**
because it converts **acres** into **square feet**
or **square yards**, etc.

To use this calculator, change the *default* value of any of
the fields and recalculate the other fields by clicking on the **Calculate** button to
the right of the field that you changed.

## Area Calculator

This * calculator* assumes that you have
already calculated the actual area of a given space, whether it be

**acres**,

**square feet**or

**square yards**, etc.

For instance, if you are trying to figure out how many **square
feet **are in **2** acres, you can change the *
default* value from **1** acre to **2 **
and click the button next to **acres** to calculate the
values in the other fields. In this case, the result for **
Square Feet** would be **87120.**

If you know how many **square feet** are in a given
area, you can enter that value in the **Square Feet** field
and click the button next to it to calculate the other fields.
Enter **100000** square feet in the **Square Feet**
field and click the button next to it to calculate the other fields.
**Square yards** will be **11111.11.**

Enter a value of **1** in the **Square Mile**
field and click the button next to it. **1** square
mile equals **640** acres, or **27878400**
square feet, or **3097600** square yards.
