Nedjeljko Frančula, Miljenko Lapaine

Maling (1989) specifies, among other things, area determination based on simple geometric figures, by comparison with standard figures, the square method, the method of counting the nodes of a square grid, the method of measuring by going around the edge of a territory (planimetrics), the weighing method.
