What is Earth's spatial surface?

Sep 14, 2017

Total surface area of earth: 510,072,000 sq km

Total water surface area: 70.8% (361,132,000 sq km)
Total land surface area: 29.2% (148,940,000 sq km)

Explanation:

According to modern estimates, the surface area of the Earth is approximately 510 million square km $\left(5.1 x {10}^{8} k {m}^{2}\right)$ or 196,900,000 square miles. Determining this was not only a matter of ascertaining Earth’s dimensions, but also its proper shape.
