Method: afld - airfields_by_coordinates

Select all airfields close to a given set of coordinates. All airfields within a bounding box around the coordinates will be selected.
The radius parameter defines how large the bounding box will be. A value of 1 will draw a box the size of one degree, 2 will draw a box the size of one tenth of a degree, and so on. Due to the way coordinates are calculated, the bounding box near the equator will be larger than the bounding box around a set of coordinates near the poles.
