The objective of current work is nondestructive measurement of surface area of regular or irregular shape just from image. Surface area calculation is mathematical part which needs to remember number of formulas and all for regular shape. It becomes more tedious if the shape whose area is to be calculated is irregular. In some cases such as mountain or lake measurement of dimension is also cumbersome task. To find the solution for such cases in today’s world of automation, the proposed work describes reference object based area calculation system which is based on different techniques of digital image processing. In this we have to click an image of object (whose area is to be calculated) along with one reference object with known surface area. Then the proposed system will perform image enhancement and segmentation operation and finally calculate the surface area of any 2-D surface. It is observed that the values obtained are having with good correlation with actual surface area values.
