There's a bad bug in the area calculation in the Matlab routine
geodreckon. Probably, most people calculate areas as part of the
solution of inverse problem using geoddistance; this might explain why
this bug has gone unnoticed for so long. Here is the fix which will be
included in the next release of GeographicLib.

Hey guys...the code is not running possibly because it contains openCV1.0 files. If anybody is using the same version of openCV then i hope the code will run. If anybody is using new version of openCV then try to find the equivalent files contained in the codes include,bin and lib folder.
Best of Luck
hi can some1 help me one the compiling,
i cant get it right
well according to the readme.txt included
i will need to select other compiler cos the native matlab compiler is not usable
but then after selecting i still get this message
Error using mex (line 206)
Unable to complete successfully.
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks for the help
This... is absolutely wonderful. I spent ages looking for a toolbox that would calculate geodesic areas. I figured that my only two options would be to purchase the MATLAB mapping toolbox or write a routine myself. I'm so glad I finally found this. Thank you kindly, sir.
