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.
Geocoded addressing is used to identify a plot of land, a building or part of a building, or some other construction.
Addressing data gives the unique and unquestionable identification of an address’ location. Addressing is used for:
Address validation at point of entry
Socio-economic and demographic analysis
Emergency services and public safety
Delivery of products and services
Innovation in business
