[MFD] Using RFC 5870 for GeoLocation in the PWG Semantic Model

All,

 

Now that I've had a chance to read RFC5870 I am in favor of dropping our
complex type and defining ServiceGeoLocation as a URI that adheres to
RFC5870.  There are a number of reasons but primarily:

1)      The RFC is published and can be normatively referenced right now

2)      The default, and only defined, Coordinate Reference System is
wgs84

3)      The geo uri supplies longitude, latitude in decimal degrees and
altitude in meters in the wgs84 reference model

4)      The geo uri scheme does support an optional uncertainty
parameter to cover a margin of error for the location in meters

 

Unless there is an objection I plan to make the change for the soon to
be released named version of the PWG MFD Model XML Schema.  I plan to
put this out later this week.

 

Comments?

Pete
