Details A unit of area called an are (abbreviated as 'a') is a metric unit used to measure the area of a flat surface, such as a piece of land or a room. One are is equal to 100 square meters (m²) or 1,076.39 square feet. It is not as widely used as other units of area like square meters, square kilometers, or acres, but it can still be found in some countries as a means to describe land sizes. It is particularly used in the real estate and construction industries.
