Re: [dxwg] Spatial coverage [RSC] (#83)

Back to spatial coverage: unfortunately there are at least three respectable serializations of geometry in common use in different parts of the community:
- WKT - originally from OGC, now built-in to the Postgres extension PostGIS, and also used in [GeoSPARQL](
- [GeoJSON ]( - which uses nested JSON arrays
- []( - which uses a single space-separated array of coordinates

AFAIK WKT is the only one that also supports association with a [Coordinate Reference System](

Then there are others, like GML, What3Words, ... 

The [Spatial Data on the Web Best Practice]( is agnostic ... Should we attempt to provide any guidance?
