Is 'Areometer' a word?

I can't immediately think of a specific use, but I'm sure the Google Areometer is something worth bookmarking.  Based on Google Maps, it allows one to plot the boundary of a polygon and discover the size of the area enclosed, in a variety of units.

Actually there is a word for a device that measures areas: a planimeter. But I couldn't remember the word when I wrote the page.
