Technical Summary This document provides a guideline for creating civic address consideration documents for individual countries, as required by RFC 4776. Since civic addresses may have a different format in individual countries, such address considerations are necessary in order to map the civic address fields to the PIDF Location Object (PIDF-LO) elements. Working Group Summary This document was reviewed by the GEOPRIV working group, where it has reached consensus for publication as an IETF RFC. Document Quality XML examples in the document validate against relevant schemas. The document itself defines one implementation of its recommendations: In addition to defining guidelines for mappings between local civic address standards and the format of RFC 4776, the document describes such a mapping for addresses within Austria.
