minimum bounding rectangle
See Also: extent
[ESRI software] A rectangle, oriented to the x- and y-axes, that bounds a geographic feature or a geographic dataset. It is specified by two coordinate pairs: xmin, ymin and xmax, ymax.

A rectangle, oriented to the x and y axes, which bounds a geographic feature or a geographic data set. It is specified by two coordinates: xmin,ymin and xmax,ymax.

Minimum bounding rectangle (MBR) of all shapes contained within the shapefile; four doubles in the following order: min X, min Y, max X, max Y

A graphic defining a sharp contrast change in the slope of the land. e.g. embankment.

Minimum Bounding Rectangle The rectangle defined by the map extent of a geographic data set and specified by two coordinates: xmin, ymin, and xmanx, ymax. Model
An abstraction of reality.

extent - [data analysis] The (xmin, ymin and xmax, ymax) defined by coordinate pairs of a data source. All coordinates for the data source fall within this boundary. [Category=Geospatial ] ...

The extents of your data can be visualized as a Minimum Bounding Rectangle (MBR), meaning the smallest possible rectangle that contains your data. Below is an image that illustrates the concept of the MBR.

The coverage or grid boundary file, which contains the (i.e., xmin. ymin and xmax, ymac) of all coordinates for arcs and label points in a coverage. See also Coverage Extent.

map extent : The rectangular limits (xmin,ymin,xmax,ymax) of the area of the Earth's surface you want to display using ARC/INFO. The geographic extent specified by the minimum bounding rectangle of a study area.

coverage extent The coordinates defining the (i.e., xmin,ymin and xmax,ymax) of a coverage or grid. All coordinates for the coverage or grid fall within this boundary.
