  Name: OGC OpenLS Route Service v1.1
  Abbreviation: OpenLS-RS
  Description: This service determines a route for a subscriber. The subscriber must use a navigation application to set up the use of the service. They must indicate the start point (usually the position acquired through the Gateway Service, but this could be a planned trip from a specified location, say, from their home), and the endpoint (any location, like a place for which they only have the phone number or an address, or a place acquired through a search to a Directory Service). The subscriber may optionally specify waypoints, in some manner, the route preference (fastest, shortest, least traffic, most scenic, etc.), and the preferred mode of transport. The subscriber may optionally store a route for as long as needed, thus requiring the means to also fetch a stored route.
