polyarea

0th

Percentile

Determines area of a polygon by triangle method.

Determines area of a polygon by triangle method. The variables x and y define the vertex pairs, and must therefore have the same shape. They can be either vectors or arrays. If they are arrays then the columns of x and y are treated separately and an area returned for each.

Usage
polyarea(x, y, d = 1)
Arguments
x

X coordinates of verticies.

y

Y coordinates of verticies.

d

Dimension of array to work along.

Details

If the optional dim argument is given, then polyarea works along this dimension of the arrays x and y.

Value

Area(s) of polygon(s).
