I have the MSA/CMSA shapefile which contains 274 metropolitan areas. How do I have to obtain the maximum/minimum longitude and latitude for an area?
So, it's like drawing a box right outside and getting the 4 corner points in the lon/lat format.
Can we do this using Python to iterate the process for all the cities and to export the coordinates to a text file as follows?:
msa min_lon max_lon min_lat max_lat 6162 -76.XXXX -74.XXXX 38.XXXX 40.XXXX 9094 -97.XXXX -96.XXXX 37.XXXX 38.XXXX .... ....
