superficies of cultived space

Postby LEPRINCE » February 7th, 2018, 1:01 pm

Hi everybody,
I have a project to collect agricultural data.
I do not know how to calculate the superficies of a space with CSPRO from GPS coordinates.
Thanks for your help

CSPro does not have a function that will do this calculation for you. Unfortunately, calculating the area of an irregular polygon is non-trivial. I recommend looking at a well-tested library like GEOS (C/C++) or Shapely (Python).

@ Aaron. Thank you for your support. Do you think it's feasible to Cspro to support python, R in the future?
So this will boost Cspro power by adding an object programming layer and open it to multiples existing libraries, functions.
Thanks in advance!

If you are on Android another option is to launch an app to collect the boundary points and calculate the area. There are a number of free apps on the play store that can do that: ... calculator

You could launch one of these apps using execsystem.
