Let's say you want to gather data about something across the country - e.g. stores, restaurants, hotels. However, you can only access the data through geographic search where you input the latitude and longitude, receiving back data points around the coordinates entered.
To get all of the data across the geographic span you're interested in, you'll need to repeat this process by changing the input latitude and longitudes one-by-one until you cover the entire area.
This tool lets you select a geographic bounding box and will give you all of the coordinates spaced out in CSV format so you can gather the data you need across any location in the world.
Drag the map and zoom into the area you're interested in.
Hover over the map and click the box select icon.
Click and drag on the map to select the rectangle of space you want the coordinates from. When you release, your map should look like this:
Use the slider below the map to change how far away the coordinates should be from each other, e.g. a more coarse USA:
Select all in the text box below the slider and you'll have all of your latitudes and longitudes in a CSV!
