xmax East bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, west longitudes negative. Specify this OR xur
ymax North bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, south latitudes negative. Specify this OR yur
ymin South bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, south latitudes negative. Specify this OR yll
xll West bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, west longitudes negative
xur East bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, west longitudes negative
yur North bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, south latitudes negative
yll South bounding coordinate, in decimal degrees NAD83, south latitudes negative
