Locations and Addresses Community Group

The LOCADD CG aims at reviewing the existing efforts to standardize vocabularies/encodings for providing a geospatial reference for resources (e.g., through coordinate geometries, addresses or geographical names), and to assess whether any use cases (in the context of the Semantic Web and possibly not limited to the geospatial domain) would be served by harmonisation and/or new standardisation work.
