ee.Geometry.MultiPolygon.area

Returns the area of the geometry. Area of points and line strings is 0, and the area of multi geometries is the sum of the areas of their components (intersecting areas are counted multiple times).

UsageReturns
MultiPolygon.area(maxError, proj)Float
ArgumentTypeDetails
this: geometryGeometry

The geometry input.

maxErrorErrorMargin, default: null

The maximum amount of error tolerated when performing any necessary reprojection.

projProjection, default: null

If specified, the result will be in the units of the coordinate system of this projection. Otherwise it will be in square meters.

Examples

Code Editor (JavaScript)

// Define a MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygon = ee.Geometry.MultiPolygon(
    [[[[-122.092, 37.424],
       [-122.086, 37.418],
       [-122.079, 37.425],
       [-122.085, 37.423]]],
     [[[-122.081, 37.417],
       [-122.086, 37.421],
       [-122.089, 37.416]]]]);

// Apply the area method to the MultiPolygon object.
var multiPolygonArea = multiPolygon.area({'maxError': 1});

// Print the result to the console.
print('multiPolygon.area(...) =', multiPolygonArea);

// Display relevant geometries on the map.
Map.setCenter(-122.085, 37.422, 15);
Map.addLayer(multiPolygon,
             {'color': 'black'},
             'Geometry [black]: multiPolygon');
