Hi Valerio,

yes, each query return the coordinate of the point or selection on the map.
you can retrieve the data from the handleHttpPostRequest ( or filterPostRequest, depending what you want to do with the values)
the variable name is "selection_coords"

for exemple, in handleHttpPostRequest :

if (isset($request['selection_coords']) {
    $this->coordinates = $request['selection_coords'];

or in filterPostRequest :

if ($request->getValue('selection_coords') && !empty($request->getValue('selection_coords'))) {
    this->coordinates = $request->getValue('selection_coords');

the coordinates are a string like this 'x,y' for point or 'xmin,ymin;xmax,ymax;...' for box
