GeoBoundsRegion

GeoBoundsRegion[{{latmin,latmax},{lonmin,lonmax}}]

is a two-dimensional GeoGraphics primitive that represents a geo region bounded by parallels latmin, latmax and meridians lonmin, lonmax on the surface of the Earth.

GeoBoundsRegion[g]

represents the latitude-longitude bounding box of the geo region g.

GeoBoundsRegion[g,δ]

pads the ranges of latitudes and longitudes by ±δ.

Details

  • Latitudes and longitudes can be given as numbers in degrees or as Quantity angles.
  • The geo bounds region is taken to cover longitudes from lonmin toward the east until reaching lonmax.
  • GeoBoundsRegion[g,δ] for a geo region g and a padding specification δ is equivalent to GeoBoundsRegion[GeoBounds[g,δ]].
