## ◆ lwgeom_area_sphere()

 double lwgeom_area_sphere ( const LWGEOM * lwgeom, const SPHEROID * spheroid )

Calculate the area of an LWGEOM.

Calculate the geodetic area of a lwgeom on the sphere.

Anything except POLYGON, MULTIPOLYGON and GEOMETRYCOLLECTION return zero immediately. Multi's recurse, polygons calculate external ring area and subtract internal ring area. A GBOX is required to calculate an outside point.
