IMHO, the right solution will almost certainly allow both. Just as
there are a wide range of users inputting data that comes from a wide
range of sources, we should be flexible and accommodate this.
Essentially your options are:

1) Computed areas
2) Measured areas

If we have access to accurate measurements of areas, then yes, we
should store them. If we don't, then computations (based on width, or
number of lanes, or whatever) are much better than nothing.

Btw... what the hell was the big discussion about scrambled GPS
signals for altitudes about? Waaaaay off topic. This list really needs
a moderator. Between the three of you you manage to create like a
hundred messages of spam in two days, yet say virtually nothing.

Why don't you use some other medium for this rapid fire exchange of
half-arsed ideas and petty bickering, and post to the list when you
have something substantial to say? It's completely ridiculous.
