GeoBounds

GeoBounds[g]
gives the ranges of latitudes and longitudes in the geo region g.

GeoBounds[g,δ]
pads ranges of latitudes and longitudes by ±δ.

GeoBounds[g,Scaled[s]]
pads range of latitudes and longitudes by a scaled amount s.

DetailsDetails

  • GeoBounds[g] returns ranges of latitude and longitude in degrees.
  • The geo region g may be given as a combination of GeoGraphics primitives such as GeoDisk and GeoPath, geographic Entity[] and EntityClass[] objects, or individual GeoPosition locations.
  • For extended geographic entities, the property is used. For point-like entities, the property is used.
  • The option GeoModel specifies the model of the Earth or celestial body being used.
