UOM of location in Agriculture module

Hello,

In the Agriculture Module, Land has been changed to Location now. In the Location doctype, when I select certain area and save it is calculating the Area but unsure of what UOM is it calculating, sq. feet, sq. yard, or sq. mt). It would be very helpful as I am not sure what to select.

Regards,

Hello all,

Can anyone help plz…

Some ideas:

Select a clearly defined area whose size you already know to some precision - the “calibration points” - so you can deduce the units of measure?

Google Maps has a tool to determine area that may help https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/measure-area-distance-google-maps-earth/

It’s seems to be sq. meters

https://github.com/frappe/erpnext/blob/develop/erpnext/assets/doctype/location/location.py#L127

Calculate the total area for a set of location features.
Reference from https://github.com/scisco/area.

Args:
	`features` (list of dict): Features marked on the map as GeoJSON data

Returns:
	float: The approximate signed geodesic area (in sq. meters)
