Distribution: NSW Address Location Service - Information Sheet

Dataset: NSW Address Location Service


The NSW Address Location Service web service allows the user to enter an
address and pinpoint the location of that address.

The NSW Address Location Service is derived from the Geocoded Urban and
Rural Address System (GURAS) database.

This web service allows users to easily integrate NSW addressing
information into spatial platforms and applications.

The addressing web service provides users with a unique and unambiguous
identification of an address site and its location within NSW. The ability
to identify the location of an address supports a wide range of business
functions including: the delivery of products and services, public safety,
communication and socio-economic and demographic analysis.

The GURAS database is the authoritative property addressing system
for NSW.
