Hi all,

I've noticed that the measure tool does not calculate areas correctly.

I have made some tests, comparing with the same tool in ArcMap.

The results can be viewed in: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/51/fig4t.png/

The shapefile used can be downloaded from: http://www.sendspace.com/file/bd0wbt

It is a 2d shapefile, with the projection/coordinate system SAD69 21S.

The measures made using the measure distance tool seems to be right.

I my personal oppinion, think this an important/basic tool that must be correct...

Regards,

Evemar
