The NENA NG9-1-1 CLDXF standard supports the exchange of
United States civic location address information about 9-1-1 calls, both within
the US and internationally. The NENA NG9-1-1 CLDXF standard covers civic
location addresses within the United States, including its outlying territories
and possessions. The NENA NG9-1-1 CLDXF standard defines the detailed data
elements needed for address data exchange.

civic location data elements that support emergency call routing and dispatch.

Information Data Format-Location Object (PIDF-LO) and those same NENA core
civic location data elements.

elements to the corresponding Federal Geographic Data Committee, United States

FGDC-STD-016-2011 set of data elements, which was sponsored by the Urban and
