Conceptually vcard has multiple mailing addresses and one current location:
Type name: GEO
Type purpose: To specify information related to the global
positioning of the object the vCard represents.
Type encoding: 8bit
Type value: A single structured value consisting of two float values
separated by the SEMI-COLON character (ASCII decimal 59).
Type special notes: This type specifies information related to the
global position of the object associated with the vCard. The value
specifies latitude and longitude, in that order (i.e., "LAT LON"
ordering). The longitude represents the location east and west of the
prime meridian as a positive or negative real number, respectively.
The latitude represents the location north and south of the equator
as a positive or negative real number, respectively. The longitude
and latitude values MUST be specified as decimal degrees and should
be specified to six decimal places. This will allow for granularity
within a meter of the geographical position. The text components are
separated by the SEMI-COLON character (ASCII decimal 59). The simple
formula for converting degrees-minutes-seconds into decimal degrees
decimal = degrees + minutes/60 + seconds/3600.
