This {'oH} hanging by itself feels odd and {-Daq} is out of place.
I guess you are patterning this on the English "It is at...", but the 
pronouns aren't true verbs, although they can be used to equate two 
nouns to each other.  You need another noun in there.  We often use 
{Quv} "coordinates" in the sense of a Website's URL:

*http://...* 'oH QuvDaj'e'.

Good use of time stamp and aspect!
