For many years now, the Web of data has been dominated with the use of only one Coordinates Reference System (CRS), namely WGS84, to represent the location of geographical features on Earth. In this paper, we propose two vocabularies that take into account geometries de ned in di erent CRS. We provide as well mappings with existing vocabularies to ensure compatibilities with existing implementations. Finally, we describe a REST service that supports the conversion of coordinates between several CRS.
