This working draft proposes a new concept, u-Position to be used for interchange of geographic data in any distributed environments without physical references such as coordinates.

This working draft specifies

  • u-Position naming scheme,
  • requirements for u-Position server to handle the u-Position scheme,
  • interfaces to be parts of the u-Position server.
