Why not a simple convex hull?, v.hull in grass (http://grass.osgeo.
In my experience, when you survey something, is easier to record gps data in 
one direction not in circles... (the direction and the extent of the surveyed 
area was planned before), then is better record point data with different 
attributes instead of track with attribute.
