A <geo> element for marking up locations in a document


schema.org/GeoShape has you covered.


Could you give a practical code example? That would help to visualize what you mean.


I think @alwillis means schema.org/GeoCoordinates with markup something like this:

<div itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Place">
  <h1>What is the latitude and longitude of the <span itemprop="name">Empire State Building</span>?</h1>
  <div itemprop="geo" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/GeoCoordinates">
    Latitude: 40 deg 44 min 54.36 sec N
    Longitude: 73 deg 59 min 8.5 dec W
    <meta itemprop="latitude" content="40.75" />
    <meta itemprop="longitude" content="73.98" />
