## Taking a second look at your sectioned polygons from your map, do you think your area is an exact measure of the space affected by the spill?

Yes I do think my area is an exact measure.

## How accurate do you think your polygons compare to the actual spill area? Do you expect your answer to be more or less than the actual spill area?

I think they are very accurate. I think it should be less than the actual spill area.
