Field definition and scope:

Field 034 contains the coded form of the cartographic mathematical data relevant to the entity described in the authority record.  The data that is recorded usually derives from authoritative sources.

For digital items, the coordinates can represent a bounding rectangle, the outline of the area covered and/or the outline of an interior area not covered.  For celestial charts, it may also contain zone, declination data, and/or right ascension data, and/or equinox.

The National level record requirement for this field is Mandatory if applicable.

Field 034 is repeatable.

Guidelines for applying content designators:
