This memo describes a method of registering HTML documents with a specific geographic location through means of embedded META tags. The content of the META tags gives the geographic position of the resource described by the HTML document in terms of Latitude, Longitude, and optionally Elevation in a simple, machine-readable manner. This information may be used for automated resource discovery by means of an HTML indexing agent or search engine. META tags giving a civic location of a resource are also described.
