    Determine area size using latitude and longitude points

      Hi community,

       

      I would like to determine the area (square miles or kilometers, which ever is easier) based on data using latititude and longitude.  Basically I want to be able to draw a perimeter using the outer most data points and then calculate the area of this polygon.  The approach must be intelligent enough to exclude all the points inside the polygon.  I've attached a diagram of what i'm trying to achieve.  Hopefully this is clear.

       

      thanks,
