comment How to set map rotation in ArcGIS Javascript API?

Glad to help. If you're using calculate field, then yes, you can specify a unit. I'm pretty sure ArcGIS is just doing the conversion for you when it does the area calculation.

comment Is there anyway to make GPModels with python scripts execute faster?
I'd be surprised if the network is slowing you down that much...try those commands in the python window in ArcMap. Are they still slow?
