I have a script, written in python, that does many calculations - but one set of calculations hinges on determining the area of a polygon that I read in, in GeoJSON format. I can convert this object to a shaply object (package), a WKT object, a dictionary, etc., none of allows me to directly determine the projected area. Converting to a shapely object allows me to know the GCS area, but shapely doesn't have tools for projecting objects. Is there a package or module to project this object in python, using the arguments I supply (the GCS it's in, the PCS I hope to project it to) so that I can determine the area?
