Coordinates

This object represents geographical coordinates in Latitude and Longitude.

Throughout our API we provide coordinates using decimal degrees with a precision of up to 7 decimal places. This allows a worst-case-scenario accuracy of 1.1112 centimetres at the Equator.

Decimal coordinates represent degrees of latitude and longitude. Negative values indicate South for Latitude and West for Longitude.

All coordinates make reference to the WGS84 model.
