Technical Summary This document describes filters that limit asynchronous location notifications to compelling events, designed as an extension to RFC 4661, an XML-based format for event notification filtering, and based on RFC 3856, the SIP presence event package. The resulting location information is conveyed in existing location formats wrapped in the Presence Information Data Format Location Object (PIDF-LO). Working Group Summary There is consensus in the working group that the policies described this document are a useful way to transmit geolocation-based event filters. Document Quality The document has been reviewed by key participants from the GEOPRIV working group.
