Calculating area of a map, the dumb way

This online tool, at, is designed for parcel measurement in Union County, North Carolina. I just needed a quick way to find the area of a map we'd made in Lima, Peru. I'll try Google Earth next, though.

It ended up being 207 acres, or 0.3 square miles. Not so great, given that it was from 2 miles up!
