Examples and How To

Calculate Geographic Area for Vector Data in Polygon Format

This example shows how to calculate geographic areas for vector data in polygon format using the areaint function.

Concepts

Measuring Area of Spherical Quadrangles

A quadrangle is a region bounded by parallels north and south, and meridians east and west.
