Technical Summary:

   This document defines an extension to PIDF-LO (RFC4119) for the
   expression of location information that is defined relative to a
   reference point.  The reference point may be expressed as a geodetic
   or civic location, and the relative offset may be one of several
   shapes.  Optionally, a reference to a secondary document (such as a
   map image) can be included, along with the relationship of the map
   coordinate system to the reference/offset coordinate system to allow
   display of the map with the reference point and the relative offset.
   Also included in this document is a Type/Length/Value (TLV)
   representation of the relative location for use in other protocols
   that use TLVs.

Working Group Summary:

This document is the product of many years of discussion within the WG. Ultimately, a design team comprised of authors with originally differing views came together to produce a specification that obtained WG consensus.

Document Quality:

There are both existing implementations of what is specified here and plans to implement it.
