5.6.  The gps element: defining a waypoint

To note that a given GPS waypoint falls inside a given location, include a gps element inside the loc element:

birdnotes.rnc
gps = element gps
{   attribute waypoint { text },  1
    text?                         2
}
1

The waypoint attribute is required, and contains the GPS coordinates. For the exact format of these coordinates, see Section 3.2.2, “GPS coordinates”. Example:

    waypoint='340088n 1070839w'

2

The gps element can be empty, or it can include a textual description of that waypoint.
