Hectare and Square Meter are both metric units used for the measurement of a two-dimensional figures. They can also be used to measure land or houses. After the introduction of the new Standard International (SI) unit, square meters received the acknowledgement as measuring unit and hectares are still widely accepted for computing land plots mostly by farmers.

In this article, let us walk you through the specification of these metric units, the difference and the relationship between hectare and Square Meter.

## What is Hectare?

Hectare is a measurement unit of the metric system. It was invented in the year 1795. The word hectare is derived from the Latin word Hect which means area. A hectare is equivalent to 2.471 acres in the United States Customary measure and the British Imperial System.

### Current Use of Hectare

Hectare is primarily used to measure the land. Now, it is commonly used as a unit of the metric system all across the globe. However, a hectare is not considered as the SI unit but according to the SI brochure, the hectare will continue indefinitely.

Countries like India, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and the European Union commonly use this measurement unit.

### History of a Hectare

In the year 1960, the metric system was updated as the International System of Units (SI). However, it didn’t receive international recognition. The International Committee for Weights and Measures (CIPM) didn’t mention the hectare as one of the SI units but claimed that the hectare will be a non-SI unit accepted as usable International System of Units.

In the year 1972, the European Economic Community (ECC) passed a directive cataloguing replicated recommendations of the CGPM.

## What is Square Meter?

The square meter is also known as the metre square. It is the Standard International (SI) unit of area measurement. The symbolic representation of a square meter is M2. Meter square can also be written as sq m. While calculating the area, it is salient to know that the area is directly proportional to the square of the linear dimension (two-dimensional).

### Current Use of Square Meter

A square meter is a measuring unit that is used to measure two-dimensional areas, such as land. This measurement unit is widely used and acknowledged as the Standard International (SI) unit for measuring area. A square meter can be referred to as sq.m. or M2, which is equivalent to one meter on each side.

Currently, while measuring the plot, the area is proportional to the square of the linear dimension.

### History of Square Meter

Meter is the base unit for measuring the length and also is a metric unit of measurement. The word Meter is derived from the Greek word “Metron” which means a Measure. The word was originally conceptualized as one ten-millionth of the distance from the North Pole to the Equator of the Earth in 1973. In the year 1983 the standard understanding of meters was formalised during the General Conference on Weight and Measures (GCWM).

## The Relationship between Hectare and Square Meter

The relationship between hectare and square meter is not hard to understand as both of the measuring units is used to measure the area of a two-dimensional object or land.

If you understand the relationship between hectare and square meter, you will be able to convert a hectare into a square meter. You should know that one meter is equivalent to 10,000 square meters, and one square meter is equivalent to 0.0001 hectares.

In simple words, 1 hectare to a square meter is equivalent to 10,000 square meters and 2.471 acres in the British Imperial System.

## Hectare to Square Meter Conversion Table

### Important Measurement Units

There are other important measurement units which a real estate enthusiast like you should know about! Check them out in the table below. These can be important for anyone who wishes to convert areas over the top of their head. Memorizing such tables is not mandatory at all, but it adds a professional touch to your dealings. When taking area estimations, it is essential to be both precise and accurate. Accuracy speaks to how close an estimation goes to its actual measurement. This is significant because bad hardware, bad research, or human blunders can prompt wrong outcomes that are not exceptionally close to the actual figure. Such situations can be a nightmare for anyone who wants to be in the real estate field for the long run.

Precision signals a higher resolution of the figure rather than the actual figure. Suppose if a landmass is spread across 50 Square meters, then measuring it 43.532 may be precise (because of the resolution of the measurement itself) but it will nowhere be accurate (because the measurement is so far away from the true magnitude of the area). Thus, we recommend you to clarify your units and learn how to convert such measurements (such asHectare to Square Meter) seamlessly.

## Difference between hectare and square meter

The difference between hectare and square meter is mentioned in the table below:

 Hectare Square Meter It is used for measuring plots of land for agriculture, forestry, construction, etc. It is used for measuring two-dimensional objects and spaces like houses, rooms and plots of land. This measurement unit are commonly used in India, USA, Canada, Australia and European Union. This measurement unit are commonly used in India, Hong Kong, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Hectare is considered as a non-SI unit, but it is acceptable as a usable International System of Units. It is a SI unit and is widely accepted and acknowledged. 1 Hectare = 1,000 Square Meter 1 Square Meter = 0.0001 Hectare

### Bottom Line

Both measuring units hectare and square meters are commonly used for houses and land. However, two-dimensional objects can be measured using a square meter. The conversion and calculation can be a hassle, the best way to calculate the measurement is by using Hectare (ha) to Square Meter (sq. m.) calculator.
