Return Value

Type: System.Double
The area of the filled region of the geometry.

Some Geometry methods (such as GetArea) produce or use a polygonal approximation of the geometry. The tolerance factor specifies the maximum distance between points in this polygonal approximation. Smaller tolerance values produce better approximations, but require more processing than an approximation with a large tolerance factor.
