Since two numbers are given and the challenge is about geography
it can be deduced that those numbers represent coordinates.
Latitude und longitude normally are numbers with at least one
decimal place so the bitstrings are single precision floating point values.

[cord.c](cord.c) takes those bitstrings and converts them into human-readable form:
-70.249863 -18.529234

Entering those into [OpenStreetMap](https://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=-70.249863%20-18.529234#map=6/-70.250/-18.529) unfortunately yielded nothing at first:

But after swapping the coordinates to
-18.529234 -70.249863
