This is an R implementation of Jan Philip Matuschek's bounding box article: Finding Points Within a Distance of a Latitude/Longitude Using Bounding Coordinates.
So here we can look at the area within one square mile of the White House:
bounding_box(38.89768, -77.03653, 1)
## min max ## lng -77.06 -77.02 ## lat 38.88 38.91
Let's apply it. Here's an example plotting a bounding box around the 2012 Olympic Stadium:
library(ggplot2); library(ggmap) bb <- bounding_box(lon = -0.016179, lat = 51.538525, 1) mapImageData <- get_map(location = c(lon = -0.016179, lat = 51.538525), color = "color", source = "google", maptype = "hybrid", zoom = 14) ggmap(mapImageData, extent = "device", ylab = "Latitude", xlab = "Longitude") + geom_rect(aes(xmin = bb[1, 1], xmax = bb[1, 2], ymin = bb[2, 1], ymax = bb[2, 2]), color="red", fill=NA, size=2) + geom_point(data=data.frame(lon = -0.016179, lat = 51.538525), size=7, color="yellow")
