National address location Web Service (pilot GovHack 2017)
The service validates addresses and returns the standardised address, their locations (X,Y coordinates) and match score. These coordinates can be used with the Location SA Street Map Web Service or other map data to display the returned record on a map. Data incorporates G-NAF ©PSMA Australia Limited licensed by the Commonwealth of Australia under the Open Geo-coded National Address File (G-NAF) End User Licence Agreement for the purpose of verifying, validating and mapping addresses.
The address locator service supports a REST (JSON) web interface.
The address locator is based on a sophisticated series of addressing rules which are applied to the reference dataset GNAF produced by PSMA Australia. To learn more about the GNAF dataset:
