Doubts about acronyms used in spacemaker

 

As I am Brazilian, I am not familiar with American acronyms and I need to understand what they represent in my country, if anyone can help me, I will be grateful. Here are images that I have doubts about the term, despite understanding the numbers.

@ruyraoli thanks for asking! I am not able to help you, but maybe some of our other users are? I have also reached out to my colleague @Anonymous as he is portuguese. Hoping someone can help you out!

Hi @ruyraoli
Below is a list of what each acronym stands for. I don't know how they are locally interpreted in Brazil, but we try to explain that on our help center: International area metrics or you can see it as a representation inside "Project Settings" > "Buildings" inside the actual project. If you are interested in any other of our area metric calculations then you can find your appropriate one from this list: https://help.spacemaker.ai/en/?q=area+metrics

 

The two projects that you are referring to are in different countries and that is the reason for the two different metrics acronyms. In some countries, we are using the local way of calculating the areas, and to not confuse the user we then use the acronym used by that country for that stat. So GFA (Gross Floor area) and BTA (Norwegain stat for GFA) is the same, it just tells the user that we are using the local calculation method for that country.

We have added a tooltip on hover so that this will be easier to see in the future
