This data element is used by many of the ITS functions to communicate the location of any transportation feature, entity, or event in an unambiguous and mutually understandable way. The Society of Automotive Engineer's Information Report SAE J2374 describes a suite of alternative location referencing interface profiles for use in Intelligent Transportation Systems. The location referencing interface profiles included in J2374 are in varying states of development and will continue to evolve as ITS user requirements and results of computer and field tests become available. The current set of interface profiles includes: - Geometry Profile - Geographic Coordinate Profile - Grid Profile - Linear Referencing Profile - Cross-streets Profile - Address Profile The profiles, when incorporated into relevant standards, will provide a common language for the expression of location between the different elements of an integrated transportation system.
