## Property restrictions

The original properties had restricted data types in terms of min max inclusive. Should these be retained? they were done to mirror ISO 19115 content.

Longitude values expressed as a decimal between the values of -180 and 180 degrees.

Latitude values expressed as a decimal between the values of -90 and 90 degrees.
