This document defines an extension to the Presence Information Data
Format Location Object (PIDF-LO) (RFC 4119) 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.  An alternative
binary representation is described.

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.

This document is a product of the Geographic Location/Privacy Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
