Error - Requested area is larger than allowed for your account type (25.00 square degrees)

Darrin May 24, 2019 01:50PM BST

I am trying to identify the cause of this error. I could not find any references in the documentation.

This request is a SUCCESS:
https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/box/city?bbox=-96.8466%2C37.0905747%2C-92.5829684%2C41.7686%2C9&appid=<apikey>

While this request FAILS
https://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/box/city?bbox=-96.5829684%2C26.5383355%2C-79.37923649999999%2C41.0905747%2C9&appid=<apikey>

response
{"cod":"400","message":"Requested area is larger than allowed for your account type (25.00 square degrees)"}

I know it has something to do with the bbox range, but I can't find any documentation. I am currently testing with the free subscription.

Thanks
