Abstract: Given real numbers $ 4\pi>\theta_0\geq\theta_1\geq\theta_2\geq\theta_3>0$ so that $ \sum_{j=0}^3\theta_j=4\pi$, we provide a detailed description of the space of flat metrics on the 2-sphere with 4 conical points of cone angles $ \theta_0,\theta_1,\theta_2,\theta_3$, endowed with a geometric structure arising from the area function.
