An easy and relative accurate way is by marking the area to be measured in Google Earth and exporting it as a KML file. It is then possible to easily view this file again in Google Earth or on Google maps Google Earth Professional allows you measure acreage, but it is quite expensive if all you are interested in is measuring area. There are cheaper programs like EasyAcreage (www.wildsoft.org/EasyAcreage) that uses the KML export methods that exists in the standard free version of Google Earth to calculate acreage.
