The datatype in this package is an aggregate of the metadata elements that describe the spatial and temporal extent of the referring entity. The EX_Extent entity contains information about the geographic (EX_GeographicExtent), temporal (EX_TemporalExtent) and the vertical (EX_VerticalExtent) extent of the referring entity. EX_GeographicExtent can be subclassed as EX_BoundingPolygon, EX_GeographicBoundingBox and EX_GeographicDescription. The combined spatial and temporal extent (EX_SpatialTemporalExtent) is an aggregate of EX_GeographicExtent. EX_SpatialTemporalExtent is a subclass of EX_TemporalExtent.

The EX_Extent entity has three optional roles named "geographicElement", "temporalElement", and "verticalElement" and an element called "description". At least one of the four shall be used.
