Frustrating Correction of the day
I'm sending in a water distribution plan for a new subdivision.
Lots are allocated irrigation water from an old appropriation, in this case a territorial appropriation so it's good water.
Anyway the norm used to be to round up or down areas to the nearest acre, now it's become the nearest .1 acres which is a bit silly.
These are large acreage tracts and each tract has to show acreage in each 40, some cross into 3 1/41/4's.
One tract happens to just clip a 40 and the checkers want to show how many acres are covered. Turns out it's 400 sq. ft.
So rounded to the nearest tenth it comes out to 0.0Acres.
Rather than change the lines and thus making two tracts get readjusted I'm labeling 0.0 Acres,,,,,,a first for me.
400 SqFt rounds to 0.01Acre.
I think you have to show the relevant decimal. you can lose it when you add it all up.

My area specs:
In addition the unit area will be rounded as follows:
- areas less than 100m2 will be depicted in square metres and rounded to the nearest 0.1m2
- areas greater than 100m2 and less than 1 ha (10 000m2) will be depicted in square metres and rounded to the nearest 1m2
- areas 1 ha to 9999 ha will be depicted in hectares expressed to four significant figures, and rounded to the nearest significant figure.
- areas 10000 ha and greater will be depicted in hectares rounded to the nearest hectare.
I wrote an easement for FOUR square feet yesterday.
