Satellite Estimate Calculator

 

To use the Satellite Estimate Calculator to measure a property and calculate how much to charge for a service, go to the Calculator Tab>Satellite View Area Calculator

 

 

 

 

Start by either typing in an address or selecting an existing customer and property to measure. blank

 

 

 

 

Next, click “Measurement Options” button to make sure they are the options you would like to use.blank

 

 

 

For measuring units you have the options to use: feet, yards, meters, or acresblank

 

 

 

 

You can select how many decimal places you have in your measurements.blank

 

 

 

 

You can also select how many decimal places you will have in your rate.blank

 

 

 

Next choose what you are measuring.

You can measure: Buildings, Distances, Property, Area, or a Custom selection.

For this example I chose to measure the property.

I chose red for the color of this measurement.

Click in the first corner of the property and then click in the remaining corners. The last line needs to connect to the corner you first clicked on. blank

 

 

 

 

I then entered the rate for this property (you can do this before or after measuring) and it calculated the total amount.blank

 

 

 

 

If there is an area that you need to subtract from the total area (such as a building) you can then select to measure and subtract it.

Make sure you enter the rate and choose what to subtract it from. blank

 

 

 

 

If you would like to save these measurements to the property, click the “Save Measurements to New Property” button if you entered a new address or the “Save Measurement to Property” if you selected a an existing property at the top of the page.blankblank

 

 

To see this saved measurement, you will go to the Customer Tab>Propertiesblank

 

 

 

 

Find the property and click the pencil button.blank

 

 

 

 

Scroll down and you will see it located under the “Custom Field” section.blank
