gex:EX_GeographicBoundingBox

EX Extent.png

Bounding coordinates of the maximum geospatial extent in decimal degrees. Not required resource is non-geospatial and the resource scopeCode = 'nonGeographicDataset'. When there are multiple extents, provide the bounding coordinates at the top with the id attribute of 'boundingGeographicBoundingBox'.

Elements Domain Definition and Recommended Practice Examples
1 gex:extentTypeCode 0..1 gco:Boolean Indication of whether the bounding polygon encompasses an area covered by the data or an area where data is not present. Default assumption is that the bounding area is where the data is present. EX_GeographicBoundingBox
westBoundLongitude: -179.716
eastBoundLongitude: 179.883
southBoundLatitude: -65.616
northBoundLatitude: 56.166
2 gex:westBoundLongitude 1 gco:Decimal Westernmost coordinate of the limit of the dataset extent, expressed in longitude in decimal degrees.
3 gex:eastBoundLongitude 1 gco:Decimal Easternmost coordinate of the limit of the dataset extent, expressed in longitude in decimal degrees.
4 gex:southBoundLatitude 1 gco:Decimal Southernmost coordinate of the limit of the dataset extent, expressed in latitude in decimal degrees.
5 gex:northBoundLatitude 1 gco:Decimal Northernmost coordinate of the limit of the dataset extent, expressed in latitude in decimal degrees.
