Not sure if this goes here or in Random, or if anyone on this board could even help me with this, but here goes.

I'm looking for a numerical integration technique, which can be implemented in either Matlab or Maple, which can give me the area of a shape of rather complex geometry, defined by a set of discrete points. I've got ways of doing a rough approximation of this (ie the polyarea function in Matlab) but am considerably lost as to how to do this with a higher degree of precision. I am able to create a cubic spline for the shape, and I believe this may help, but again I don't know the techniques of integration which would lead me to my answer.

As this probably wouldn't lead to much of a group discussion, replies by PM would be appreciated. Unless, of course, there are more mathematicians on this board than I thought.

For me the easiest, most convenient and cheapest, the Pay Pal Shopping Cart. They accept all major credit cards, checks and of course PayPal accounts, and now the customer doesn't have to have an account to make the purchase.
