Definition: A hectare (symbol: ha) is a unit of area that is accepted in the International System of Units (SI). It is primarily used to measure land area. One hectare is equal to 10,000 square meters and is equivalent to approximately 2.471 acres.

History/Origin: The hectare was first introduced in 1795 as part of the metric system. The term hectare is derived from the metric prefix "hecto," denoting a factor of one hundred, and the metric area "are," a metric unit for measuring area that has fallen out of use in SI. The "are" is still used in certain areas when referencing real estate, particularly in India, Indonesia, and a number of European countries.

Current use: Hectares are primarily used to measure land area around the world. Even though it is not an SI unit (just a unit accepted for use with SI) the SI brochure states that the use of the hectare is expected to "continue indefinitely."

Square yard

Definition: A square yard (symbol: sq yd) is a unit of area in the imperial and United States customary systems of units, defined as the area of a square with one-yard (3 feet, 36 inches, 0.9144 meters) sides.

Current use: The square yard is most commonly used as a measure of land area. It is not widely used around the world, but is still used within the United States, Canada, India, and the United Kingdom, to some degree.
