The other day I found a website which could greatly help us measure the area of Victoria square for accurate scale in 3ds max. The website is called Area Calculator and allows you to go to a location of your choice and put down points in order to measure the area, then it simply performs the calculations and presents you with the details.
Here you can see the points I have put down in order to define the area.
Here is the area and perimeter output which will help us accurately measure the square.
I thought I would blog this as it seems like it should come in useful for us to accurately measure the buildings/square we need to model.
