## About A Square Kilometer

One thousand meters makeup one kilometer (or “kilometer” in British spelling). Consequently, one million square meters can represent a square kilometer. Aerial photography, surveying, and landscaping use this distance and area unit. One hundred hectares are also contained within a square kilometer. In the United Kingdom, Chester is a city around one square kilometer in size. The entire area of the Manchester Golf Club is one square kilometer.

An area measuring unit is the square kilometer (km2). A square with one kilometer-long side has an area of one square kilometer.

Two lengths are used to measure a square area. Multiplying two lengths yields square units of area, such as square kilometers. Since each length in square kilometers is expressed in kilometers, multiplying kilometers by kilometers yields km2. Any area can be computed or estimated as the area made up of a certain number of unit squares, even if the measured area is not square.
