Geographical coordinates determine a specific point on a map.

I am searching for the coordinates interval (thus to frame the area) of different large cities by latitude/longitude at a 0.01°x0.01° precision.

Would you have any resources that could help me?

  • I have to find the areas of about 100 cities all around the world (some of them located in less developed countries) in a short amount of time. I figured there might be a faster way and better way to get the coordinates' interval.

  • Are you aware that a square degree decreases in area when you move away from the equator?

  • Yes I do. Sorry, I might have not written very well my question, I just edited it. I am searching, for each city I am interested in (mainly big cities in Asia), the square of coordinates defining their area. I thought there might be an official source or some lists of cities with the square of geographical coordinates covering their area.
