In particular, the need for standards is called out in two areas:

- for the National Emergency Address Database (NEAD)

- for delivery of barometric pressure information to obtain z-axis (altitude) information.

The FCC is not a party to the agreement. It seems at least plausible that existing GEOPRIV work, such as HELD, or RFC 7105, can be extended to meet those needs. I'd appreciate hearing opinions on technical options from the WG.
