A GeoCircle is a GeoShape representing a circular geographic area. As it is a GeoShape it provides the simple textual property 'circle', but also allows the combination of postalCode alongside geoRadius. The center of the circle can be indicated via the 'geoMidpoint' property, or more approximately using 'address', 'postalCode'.
PropertyExpected TypeDescription
Properties from GeoCircle
geoMidpoint GeoCoordinates Indicates the GeoCoordinates at the centre of a GeoShape e.g. GeoCircle.
geoRadius Distance  or
Number  or
Indicates the approximate radius of a GeoCircle (metres unless indicated otherwise via Distance notation).

circle Text A circle is the circular region of a specified radius centered at a specified latitude and longitude. A circle is expressed as a pair followed by a radius in meters.
elevation Number  or
The elevation of a location (WGS 84). Values may be of the form 'NUMBER UNITOFMEASUREMENT' (e.g., '1,000 m', '3,200 ft') while numbers alone should be assumed to be a value in meters.
line Text A line is a point-to-point path consisting of two or more points. A line is expressed as a series of two or more point objects separated by space.
polygon Text A polygon is the area enclosed by a point-to-point path for which the starting and ending points are the same. A polygon is expressed as a series of four or more space delimited points where the first and final points are identical.
postalCode Text The postal code. For example, 94043.
Properties from Thing
additionalType URL An additional type for the item, typically used for adding more specific types from external vocabularies in microdata syntax. This is a relationship between something and a class that the thing is in. In RDFa syntax, it is better to use the native RDFa syntax - the 'typeof' attribute - for multiple types. tools may have only weaker understanding of extra types, in particular those defined externally.
alternateName Text An alias for the item.
description Text A description of the item.
disambiguatingDescription Text A sub property of description. A short description of the item used to disambiguate from other, similar items. Information from other properties (in particular, name) may be necessary for the description to be useful for disambiguation.
identifier PropertyValue  or
Text  or
The identifier property represents any kind of identifier for any kind of Thing, such as ISBNs, GTIN codes, UUIDs etc. provides dedicated properties for representing many of these, either as textual strings or as URL (URI) links. See background notes for more details.
image ImageObject  or
An image of the item. This can be a URL or a fully described ImageObject.
mainEntityOfPage CreativeWork  or
Indicates a page (or other CreativeWork) for which this thing is the main entity being described. See background notes for details.
Inverse property: mainEntity.
name Text The name of the item.
potentialAction Action Indicates a potential Action, which describes an idealized action in which this thing would play an 'object' role.
sameAs URL URL of a reference Web page that unambiguously indicates the item's identity. E.g. the URL of the item's Wikipedia page, Wikidata entry, or official website.
