Measure fields wheel easy

How are you planning to measure your hedge, dyke or stream lengths for Entry Level Stewardship applications? Employing a consultant, or using a land wheel might be your first thoughts, but Lincs farmer Will Hales believes he”s found a simple alternative. This Scalex MapWheel, which he is importing from the USA and costs just 30, measured his 10 miles of hedges in about 90min direct from his digital maps, simply by rolling the wheel over the length of hedge, and reading off the distance from the display. “It is very simple to use, and accurate to 0.25%, although obviously it is only as accurate as the user is.”
