The current EM-TEC Client Registry Exchange spec already supports the ability for automated tools to be able to input the last known location of a client in WGS84 coordinates. To make this clearer, updated the language of the last_known_location field, as follows (changed to the original text in bold):
last_known_location (Unicode string, optional):
A free-form description of the last known location of the person, which can be expressed as geographical coordinates. To specify geographic coordinates in this field, give the latitude in decimal degrees (positive for north), then a comma, then the longitude in decimal degrees (positive for east) . If this field is present, the text field of this note (the next field listed below) should describe HOW the person's location was determined .
text (Unicode string, required):
Free-form text description of the person's current condition, situation and location details, where they were last seen, corrections to other information, and so on. In entry forms, a multi-line text box is appropriate for this field.
