Hi all,
I was curious if anyone could provide examples of how geographic 
coordinates are being represented in MODS. I am specifically interested in 
representing bounding coordinates for maps. I read in the user guide that 
the information contained in this element is "equivalent to MARC 21 fields 
034 and 255" but wanted to know specifically if decimal degree 
(34.558889, 16.253889) or degree/minute/second (34 33' 32.00", 16 15' 
14.00") the preferred geographic representation?

Thanks in advance,
John Banning
