rectangle generator

Hello,
Your circle generator program is very useful; but I'm looking for something similar for rectangles.
I'm using GEVoyager to make an automatic scan of different areas for automatic caching and offline use.
The rectangular area is defined with a point (NW corner) and a length and a height.
So visualizing this rectangular area would be useful, because I want to scan a lot of different areas.
Would you have a solution?
Best regards
Gerard

you may find the gps input a little strange, since it it made to accept a few formats
Decimal format is expected to have seven decimal places {eg (N 0.0000000) or (0.0000000)
Decimal Minutes is expected to have four decimal placed {eg (N 0000.0000) or (0000.0000)
it also accepts Decimal Minute Second in this format dd° mm' ss"

Thank you very much.
I have checked it , it works perfectly.
In the mean time, I have found another "FreeMapTool" (http://www.freemaptools.com/radius-around-point.htm)
With this tool, you can draw multiple circles, so adjusting the scanning area is easier.
Do you think that a modification from circle to rectangle in this way would be not too hard ?
