> 1 danish ( I think this one was used in Schleswig Holstein) Tonne = 55,162
> 1 Ar = 100 qm (square meter)
> 100 Ar = 1 Hektar
> 100 Hektar = 1 qkm (square kilometer)
> 1 Hektar = app 2.5 acre
> So: 1 Tonne = 5516 qm
> 2 Tonnen = app 1 Hektar
> 1 Tonne = app 1.22 acre
> 1 english square mile = 2 4/5 qkm
> 1 german square mile = 21 1/8 english square miles
> 1 english mile = 1 2/3 kilometer
> 4 3/5 english miles = 1 german mile (geographic mile)
> All distances in the topographie are shown in german miles.
> I hope that will help a bit or maybee confuse you totally???
