There are standards for the digital encoding of coordinates and other related essential information (e.g., coordinate systems, datums, spheroids). Two places to start: One of the major bodies dealing with the establishment of such standards is the Open Geospatial Consortium ( ), which publishes relevant specifications. One also might care to look at the work of the Alexandria Digital Library Gazetteer project, whose gazetteer protocol includes specifications for the encoding of coordinates ( ).
