     75     a. Predefined areaDesc text only - we may create a database for country with names of all administrative jurisdictions, like towns, cities, villages, districts, provinces, states, etc. These names would also be related to an administrative category (e.g. District={Colombo, Kalutara, Kandy}, City = {Colombo 01, Colombo 02, Kandy, Kalutara}, ...). We would first give the option for the user to filter the categories; e.g. they may chose District. Thereafter, they are presented with an autofill ajax type text box to start typing the name of the District, as in this example, and to select the name from the suggested list. Multiple names are separated by a comma.
     76     a. Polygon or Circe only - the user may chose to either define a polygon or a circle. In either case they would provide lat/lon pairs to define the shape.
     77     a. areaDesc and Polygon/Circle - the user may decide to provide an are description as in (a) and a series of lat/lon pairs to define the geographical shape of the area mentioned in the areaDesc
