I'm curious how geomason handles geographic references. I'm importing a shapefile with polygons in the WGS84 reference system. All the points have values like 52.03N 7.63E. When I measure the polygon area with a gis then I get different values than using the getArea on the polygons geometry.
Even when I accept that getArea gives me the area in degrees it isn't the same m˛ after I convert the value.
I found nothing in the api or the other doc sources where this part is described.
Now I'm not sure what to do. Am I making a mistake or do I miss something?
thanks in advance,
