Is the specification posted anywhere for the PPI Vendor Field 30,002 GPS Tagging

Wirshark is able to display this field: https://www.wireshark.org/docs/dfref/p/ppi_gps.html

The original author's page is currently down: http://new.11mercenary.net/~johnycsh/ppi_geolocation_spec/

Does the wireshark team have a copy of the specification?

Thanks!

Apparently the PPI-GEOLOCATION spec was developed by an employee of Harris, Jon Ellch.

http://govcomm.harris.com/news/view_pressrelease.asp?act=lookup&pr_id=3290

So, maybe it's best to contact him or Harris to get the specs. Unfortunately the link to the "supporting material" is dead.

For a gmail address of the spec author, see here:

I was able to reach out to the SPEC author and he provided me with the latest SPEC document, it's currently in PDF format - how can we best archive it in the Wireshark repository and/or wiki such that other members in the community may have access to it?

Best way would be to create an entry for PPI-GEOLOCATION on https://wiki.wireshark.org/ and attach the file to that entry, provided the author of the spec allows pbulic publishing the document.
