What do you call "area of a country"?
And where is it calculated?

Michel

Hi Michel sir,

The total area of India is 3,287,240 square kilometres (1,269,210 sq mi). I just want to know how area is calculated for a irregular shape. Because after that I have to develop a function where a user can input the country name and get the area as output.

Regards,
Nathan

I bet you can find the area of any country in the world on the web, you have no need to calculate it yourself.
