Sample to find Area and perimeter of a Polygon

Today tried a sample to fetch Area and perimeter of a surface using ArcGIS API with Google maps. It is easy to use, we just need to join the points for the respective surface for which we need to find the Area & perimeter and double click. I always like Central park in Newyork, Thought let us try the tool there... It works perfect... please find the link & screen shot below.

Terrain Analysis in ArcGIS Explorer


Tried installing the Terrain Profile plug-in for ArcGIS explorer. Found it interesting because, I came to know that Terrain analysis & calculations are done through ArcGIS web-servers in real-time. The location striked on my Mind was Mt. Everest from Himalayas. Just searched for Mt. Everest and landed in the location. I just enabled Terrain Analysis, drew a straight line and double clicked in order to start calculation. In few seconds it was done! The values are almost close... Its fun working with this tool & much more to explore...
