we are trying to collect a set of lat long pairs using locationmanager and 
compute area sorrounded by it.

we are just collecting the lat long as is and passing them to compute area 
using SphericalUtil.computeArea(list)

how accurate the result should be ? we find that the result has upto 60 % 
variance against actual area of the field we are walking.

please suggest remedies.
