2. Submission:
    GeoServices REST API - Part 5: Geometry Service (12-058r1)


PART B

1. Requirement: 3

2. Implementation Specification Section number: 7.3

3. Criticality: Major

4. Comments/justifications for changes:

    Use GeoJSON (http://geojson.org/geojson-spec.html).  GeoJSON is an
openly-developed, widely-used specification for simple features and
geometries.  It would facilitate the adoption of the proposed standard
to use an existing encoding.  The GeoJSON Geometry object maps well to
the proposed http://schemas.opengis.net/gsr/1.0/geometry.json.  The
one exception of GeometryEnvelope, and that can be encoded without
GeoJSON (or proposed as an addition to the spec).
