Cloud api location query coordinate array

Where can I find documentation about the formatting of the coordinates (location.geometry.coordinates) returned by the location query?

I get 3 index arrays, that I assume map to [lat, long, elevation].

Is that correct?

Which location query?
On the device?
In the cloud?

On the Tracker device it can be found here
https://docs.particle.io/reference/asset-tracking/tracker-edge-firmware/#getlocation-locationservice

The format of the outgoing event to inform the cloud about the whereabouts of the device and how to substribe to it is documented here
https://docs.particle.io/tutorials/asset-tracking/tracker-edge-firmware/#adding-to-the-location-event

Another interesting read may be the RFC 7946 GeoJSON definition (particuarly section 9)

Thank you

To clarify:

I’m asking about querying via the Cloud API.
Specifically, I’m calling the Location query via the getProductDeviceLocations() function of the JS SDK and I am getting responses in the following format:

location:{
device_id:
device_name:
geometry:{type: “LineString”, coordinates: Array(214)}

}

where each sub-array of coordinates is 3-element: [num1, num2, num3]

My question was how do num1, num2, num3 map to longitude, latitude, elevation?
Though I think I figured it out by inspecting my data–my conclusion is that it’s [long,lat,elev] format.
And thanks for pointing me to the GeoJSON doc which confirmed it.

Yup, exactly that :+1:

While the RFC 7946 explicitly states that format as the officially approved version inspecting the two data samples given in the second link I posted do lead to the same conclusion as you arrived at
