Could this be possible?

In Google maps, click Earth or Satellite in the bottom left corner of the map.
Zoom in close so the roof almost fills the screen.
Right-click the roof and select "measure distance".
Click one corner of the roof and a line will appear, with one of the end dots on the corner you just clicked.
Drag the other end-of-line dot to the second corner of the roof.
Right-click any other corner of the roof and select "Distance to here". If either end of that line are not where you want them, drag the dot(s) into position.
Right-click another corner of the roof and select "Distance to here".
Keep repeating this until you have lines drawn all the way around the edge of the roof.
Then at the bottom of the map, Google Maps will pop up a white box containing the Total Distance around the edge as well as the Total Area.
BTW, you can adjust (fine tune) the end-of-line dots by dragging it/them wherever.
For example, here's a screenshot of the dimensions of the roof at "7045 Arundel Mills Cir, Hanover, MD 21076":

I'm sure it's possible. Probably require the assistance of some of the geniuses at Google Maps/Earth through.
