The first version of the geo-URI specification is now available as an Internet Draft on the IETF web site (announcement). An Internet Draft is the first step towards publication of a specification as an RFC.
The draft specifies syntax, format and semantics of the “geo” URI – it also requests registration of the respective Uniform Resource Identifier scheme (“geo:”) from IANA.
The draft will be presented during the session of the GEOPRIV (“geographic location and privacy“) working group on the 68th IETF meeting, taking place March 18-23, 2007 in Prague. The GEOPRIV session is currently scheduled for Tuesday, March 20, 0900 – 1130. Audio streaming will be available from here.
Comments and feedback on the Internet Draft is appreciated.
