Area calculations Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I've run into a strange quirk when calculating areas in different projections. My file is originally in UTM NAD83, but the client wants it converted to State Plane NAD83. When I do I get different areas for the polygons. In the UTM version I get 8000 acres, but in the State Plane version I get 8006 acres. We can't figure out what's going on. Any ideas?
