Geocoded Addressing

The Geocoded Addressing theme focusses on the connection between a physical address with location information which shows up as a 'place' or 'spot' on the Earth. This makes the information able to be mapped and connected to other location information. An address is a structured label usually containing a property number, a road name and a locality name.
