  1. Set the measure type to Distance and Area
  2. click to add two points
  3. a line is added to be measured

Result: there are 2 segments appear, total length = 2 * segment length

Expected: only 1 segment appear, total length isn't doubled.

If measure on Bing maps, there will be an un-caughted exception.

If the measure type is set to Area, a polygon will e created no matter how many point are added. For instance, if user adds two points Point(0,0) and Point(1,1) into the map, measure widget will create a polygon Polygon((0,0) (1,1) (0,0))) which is not a valid polygon at all.

In Measure.js, var cg = geom.getCentroid(), which used the polygon's area as a divisor in the implement. The cg.x and cg.y will be NaN and cause the exception in Bing map.


Check the geom's area before calcaulate the centroid. If the area equals to zero, that means that the geom is invalid, and we just ignore the followed opertionations.
