LOC Location

To describe the location in space and time of the axis of an item relative to an origin axis; Euclidean geometry has been assumed with orthogonal axes; the sequence of axes has been chosen in the customary sequence of X, Y, and Z, however, it is possible to just use two-dimensional space rather than three-dimensional space
