Hi ! I have a little question question, when I use the surface calculation tool i get results like :
Area = 8553.308 sq. units, Perimeter = 373.149..

Those units refer to which system ?

These will be in whatever units your drawing was done in, most commonly square meters or feet. If you are using MSCAD 2005 then after this report, it will show you the area in various units.

Area = 3245.4745 sq. units, Perimeter = 237.2111
-->Perimeter = 237.211135

Results:
Square Metres: 3245.47 Hectares : 0.325
Square Feet : 34934.0 Acres : 0.802
