                    Relative Location Representation

Abstract

   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.
