GeoRange

GeoRange
is an option for GeoGraphics and GeoStyling that specifies the range of latitude and longitude to include.

DetailsDetails

  • GeoRange can be used in GeoGraphics and GeoStyling.
  • The following settings can be used:
  • Allregion corresponding to the entire world is included
    Automaticautomatically select the region to display
    Fullsame as All when used in geo graphics
    {{lat1,lat2},{lon1,lon2}}explicit limits for latitude and longitude
    {All,{lon1,lon2}}complete latitude range and specified longitude range
    {{lat1,lat2},All}specified latitude range and complete longitude range
    rexplicit radius assuming to be in meters
    quantityexplicit radius around the specified or computed geo center
    entityregion corresponding to the property of entity
    "Country"use bounding box of enclosing country
    "World"use bounding box of whole world
  • All and Full both mean the complete range of the corresponding axis, namely for latitude and for longitude. They are therefore equivalent to when used on their own, but can be also used as individual ranges, say {All,{-100,100}}.
  • An explicit range is defined by latitude and longitude ranges in degrees.
  • Specifying an entity uses the geo bounding box of its property.
  • GeoRange->quantity represents a range enclosing a geo circle of radius quantity around the center specified by GeoCenter or by the geo primitives of GeoGraphics.
  • For a longitude range , the upper boundary will be taken modulo 360 so that .
  • GeoRangePadding can be used to extend the bounding box defined by GeoRange.
  • AbsoluteOptions extracts the explicit form of GeoRange specifications when Automatic settings are given.
