TMF675B Geographic Location Conformance Profile v4.0.0
- Maturity level: General availability (GA)
Created By: Open API Project
This API encapsulates the majority of Geometry Objects defined by GeoJSON – an open standard format designed for representing simple geographical features – and released by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as RFC 79462 in August 2016. The GeoJSON schemas are adopted by FIWARE as a basis for describing IoT device (sensor, actuator) locations; supported as a Google Maps data-layer and by Amazon Web Services Location Service.
The GeoJSON types are placed in a hierarchy under a TM Forum GeographicLocation super-class (analogous to a GeoJSON Geometry), which is itself a kind-of TM Forum Place. GeographicLocation sits alongside TMF673 GeographicAddress and TMF674 GeographicSite. A GeographicLocation might be used to return the location (place) of a PhysicalResource or the position/area where Service is being provided.
