Calculate the area covered by the given slendr object

## Usage

area(x)

## Arguments

x

Object of the class slendr

## Value

Area covered by the input object. If a slendr_pop

was given, a table with an population range area in each time point will be returned. If a slendr_region or slendr_world object was specified, the total area covered by this object's spatial boundary will be returned.

## Examples

region_a <- region("A", center = c(20, 50), radius = 20)
region_b <- region("B", polygon = list(c(50, 40), c(70, 40), c(70, 60), c(50, 60)))
plot_map(region_a, region_b)

# note that area won't be *exactly* equal to pi*r^2:

area(region_b)
#> [1] 400
