Definition: 

Structures the representation for a geographic point to ensure collection of relevant information using a single response domain structure. The point may be associated with a polygon (such as the centroid of the polygon) or a line (end or shape points of a line). The structure provides a description of the default values for the datum type, coordinate system used, the coordinate zone, error correction method, standard offset, the geographic object being positioned, the type of address match if used, the point format, and spatial primitive type. It provides response options for the coordinate pairs being captured, and alternate values for the offset, geo-referenced object and coordinate system if a different one is used to capture a specific response.

Property: 
NameCardinalityDatatypeDescription
Datum
0..1
The standard datum format used. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.
CoordinateSystem
0..1
The standard coordinate system used. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.
CoordinateZone
0..1
The standard coordinate zone being used. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.
CoordinateSource
0..1
The standard coordinate source being used. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.
ErrorCorrection
0..1
The standard method of error correction being used. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.
Offset
0..1
A definition of the standard offset used when taking a coordinate reading on the geo-referenced object.
GeoreferencedObject
0..1
The standard object for which the geographic coordinates are being captured. This could be a household, village centroid, etc. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.
AddressMatchType
0..1
Use for coordinates obtained through address matching only. Identify the address matching method. Example: street segment match, ZIP code centroid, etc. Supports the use of a controlled vocabulary.

AlternateOffset
If unable to use the standard offset, allows entry of a non-standard offset figure.
0..1
AlternateObject
If the default geo-referenced object is unavailable or cannot be measured, allows identification of an alternate object.
0..1
AlternateCoordinateSystem
Specifies the coordinate system used for a response if different from that stated in the response structure.
0..1
pointFormat
The type attribute is used by the documenter to describe the numeric response domain.

spatialPrimitive
Indicates the spatial primitive object which the point references.
