public interface GeographicBoundingBox
extends GeographicExtent

Geographic position of the dataset. This is only an approximate so specifying the co-ordinate reference system is unnecessary.

Since:
GeoAPI 1.0

@UML(identifier="eastBoundLongitude",
     obligation=MANDATORY,
     specification=ISO_19115)
double getEastBoundLongitude()
Returns the eastern-most coordinate of the limit of the dataset extent. The value is expressed in longitude in decimal degrees (positive east).

Returns:
The eastern-most longitude between -180 and +180°.
Unit:
Angle

getSouthBoundLatitude

@UML(identifier="southBoundLatitude",
     obligation=MANDATORY,
     specification=ISO_19115)
double getSouthBoundLatitude()
Returns the southern-most coordinate of the limit of the dataset extent. The value is expressed in latitude in decimal degrees (positive north).

Returns:
The southern-most latitude between -90 and +90°.
Unit:
Angle

getNorthBoundLatitude

@UML(identifier="northBoundLatitude",
     obligation=MANDATORY,
     specification=ISO_19115)
double getNorthBoundLatitude()
