A square metre is equal to:

Square kilometre

1 kmĠ is equal to:

Conversely:

• 1 mĠ = 0.000 001 kmĠ
• 1 hectare = 0.01 kmĠ
• 1 square mile = 2.589 988 kmĠ
• 1 acre = 0.004 047 kmĠ

Note: "kmĠ" means square kilometre and not kilosquare metre. For example, 3 kmĠ is equal to 3 000 000 mĠ and not to 3000 mĠ.

Square megametre

Square megametres are not widely used; however, there are a number of "megametre fans" who think that this unit is very convenient for measuring oceans and continents.

1 MmĠ is equal to:

• the area of a square measuring 1 megametre on each side
• 1 000 000 000 000 mĠ
• 100 000 000 hectares
• 1 000 000 kmĠ
• 1 MmĠ is the area of Egypt
• The area of Africa is 30.2 MmĠ
• The total area of the Moon's surface is 38 MmĠ
• The total area of dry land on Earth is 149.8 MmĠ
• The area of the Pacific Ocean is 179.7 MmĠ
• The total area of the Earth's surface is 510 MmĠ
