How many feet in a Square Acre of Land?

A question that I often receive from new land surveyors is  How many feet is a square acre?I am not quite sure why this stumps so many, but this is basically what I tell them with they ask.A square enclosing one acre is approximately 69.57 yards, or 208 feet 9 inches (63.61 metres) on a side. As a unit of measure, an acre has no prescribed shape; any area of 43,560 square feet is an acre.Keep in mind the following:Because an acre is a measure of area, not length, it is defined in square feet.…

downloading from Nikon DTM 330 Terramodel 10.6

Hi everyone, I am currently having difficulty transferring data from the instrument to the PC.I recently upgraded my computer and the new one installs terramodel fine, but the instrument I use doesn't show up in the "Download/Import" list, and setting up the old pc every time I need to download the data isn't a good long term solution.If anyone knows how I can fix this I would be very appreciative for the assistance.
