> ------------------------------------------------
> Current Status: Proposed WG

> Charter:
> GeoJSON is a format for encoding data about geographic features using
> JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) [RFC7159]. Geographic features need not
> be physical things; any thing with properties that are bounded in space
> may be considered a feature. GeoJSON provides a means of representing
> both the properties and spatial extent of features.
> The GeoJSON format specification was published at http://geojson.org in
> 2008. GeoJSON today plays an important and growing role in many spatial
> databases, web APIs, and open data platforms. Consequently the
> implementers increasingly demand formal standardization, improvements in
> the specification, guidance on extensibility, and the means to utilize
> larger GeoJSON datasets.
> This WG will work on a GeoJSON Format RFC that specifies the format more
> precisely, serves as a better guide for implementers, and improves
> extensibility of the format. The work will start from an Internet-Draft
> written by the original GeoJSON authors: draft-butler-geojson [1].
> This WG will work on GeoJSON mappings of 'geo' URIs, reinforcing the use
> of RFC 5870.
> This WG will work on a format for a streamable sequence of GeoJSON texts
> based on RFC 7464 (JSON Text Sequences) to address the difficulties in
> serializing very large sequences of features or feature sequences of
> indeterminate length.
> GeoJSON objects represent geographic features only and do not specify
> associations between geographic features and particular devices, users,
> or facilities. Any association with a particular device, user, or
> facility requires another protocol. When a GeoJSON object is used in a
> context where it identifies the location of a device, user, or facility,
> it becomes subject to the architectural, security, and privacy
> considerations in RFC 6280, An Architecture for Location and Location
> Privacy in Internet Applications. The application of those considerations
> is specific to protocols that make use of GeoJSON objects and is out of
> scope for the GeoJSON WG. Although the WG is chartered to improve the
> extensibility of the format, extensions that would allow GeoJSON objects
> to specify associations between geographic features and particular
> devices, users, or facilities are not expected to be defined in the WG.
> Should that be needed, re-chartering will be required.
> Deliverables:
> * A GeoJSON format specification document including mappings of 'geo'
> URIs 
> * A document describing a format for a streamable sequence of GeoJSON
> texts
