-180 to 180 (degrees)
Northern Bound Eastern Bound
Southern Bound Western Bound

4. Define a polygon with longitude/latitude pairs.

Separate the longitude/latitude pairs with semicolons.
Enter the pairs in a sequence that traces the perimeter of a polygon.
From 3 to 25 pairs are allowed.
For example:
-109.6 41.2;    -105.8 45.2;    -101.6 41.1;    -101.88 26.20;    -109.9 36.3
