   Parameters:
       coordinates=east,north[,east,north,...] [required]
           Coordinates

       units=string
           Units
           Default: location map units
           Options: miles, feet, meters, kilometers, acres, hectares

DESCRIPTION

       m.measure provides the user with a way to measure the  lengths  and  areas  of  lines  and
       polygons.  Areas  can be stated in acres, hectares, square miles, square meters and square
       kilometers.

EXAMPLES

       Distance example in a latitude-longitude location (on great circle, i.e. an orthodrome):
       Bonn_DE="7.09549,50.73438"
       Philadelphia_US="-75.16379,39.95233"
       m.measure coordinates="$Bonn_DE,$Philadelphia_US" units=kilometers
       Length:  6217.916452 kilometers
       Visualization (with d.geodesic) of m.measure distance example

       As an example for the North Carolina sample dataset, here four points describing a  square
       of 1000m side length:
       m.measure units=meters \
         coordinates=922000,2106000,923000,2106000,923000,2107000,922000,2107000
       Length:  3000.000000 meters
       Area:    1000000.000000 square meters
       # script style output:
       m.measure -g units=hectares \
         coordinates=922000,2106000,923000,2106000,923000,2107000,922000,2107000
       units=meters,square meters
       length=3000.000000
       area=1000000.000000
