Computes the area of a polygon. For multi-part polygons, assume holes are counter-clockwise. The function has two overloaded versions. The second version also works for unprojected shapes in Latitude / Longitude (Decimal degrees) coordinates.

Specific Overloads

OverLoad 1 double Area(ref MapWinGIS.Shape shape)
OverLoad 2 double Area(ref MapWinGIS.Shape shape, MapWindow.Interfaces.UnitOfMeasure shapeUnits)


Before calculating area of large shapes, make sure your shape has an equal-area projection.
