LOC-Records (Location information)

This record type is used to specify geographical location information about hosts, networks, and subnets.

A LOC-record describes a location with the following properties:

  • Latitude / Longitude.

  • Altitude.

  • Size (diameter of the location described).

  • Horizontal / Vertical precision of the data.

Because of the binary storage format used, only the first digit of the size and precision properties can be non-zero.

Additional interesting and practical information about LOC-records is available at

To create a new LOC-record, right-click a zone in the left list in the DNS Records window, and select "Other new record" from the pop-up menu.

This record type is defined in RFC1876.
