any idea is welcome
yes, that use in open field, the points will be configured previusly (point = GPS position)HawaiianPi wrote: ↑Mon May 21, 2018 6:20 pmThat depends on how the perimeter is defined. For example, painted lines could be detected with a camera. If the perimeter is not clearly marked, then it becomes more difficult. GPS might work for an outdoor location, but might not work inside a building (or any location with poor GPS reception). We really need more information to help you.

Maybe even Calculus, but apparently not on this forum. Does Green's theorem help?drgeoff wrote: ↑Mon May 21, 2018 8:31 pmSurely anyone in a University faculty doing this project would have already been taught coordinate geometry at school.
Presumably you will represent the points defining the area as pairs of coordinates in the form returned by a GPS receiver. The standard used to be WGS84, but that may no longer be current.the question how to pass the points to identify them as a "side"
Interesting article. While the length of the coastline may not be well defined, the area enclosed is. But now that I reread the question I see that it isn't a matter of finding the area, but whether a particular point is inside or outside the area. Again the answer can be determined by an integral over the perimeter, just a different one than for finding area.
I want to thank you, I turned google looking for information but I did not succeed
