The Locations and Addresses Community Group has been proposed by Phil Archer:
There have been several recent efforts to standardize vocabularies for describing locations, using existing geometry specifications. GeoSPARQL, NeoGeo and the EU ISA Programme\\\’s Location Core Vocabulary join schema.org\\\’s vocabulary and more. Is there a set of use cases that an usefully be served by greater collaboration in this space? What problems remain? Where are the awkward edges that need to be knocked into shape?
You are invited to support the creation of this group. Once the group has a total of five supporters, W3C launch the group and people can join to begin work.
In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account.
If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please send us email on email@example.com
