inventory of public address data for geocoding in Europe

Moritz Lennert
Hello,

I'm hoping to be able to revive this list a bit with a specific project:
In the context of my research, I'm currently trying to compile an
inventory of public open address data usable for geocoding (or possibly
publicly accessible geocoding services). At this stage I have already
come upon the following data sources:

Spain: CartoCiudad
France: BD Adresses and the PointsAdresses from IGN France
Netherlands: BAG Compact from the Dutch Cadaster
Belgium: The Geodatabases from the three Belgian regions (UrBIS, PLI and
AGIV)
- Great Britain: Code-Point from the Ordnance Survey (not address, but
postcodes which are very dense in GB)

The output could be a list of such data on [1], but should also lead to
a publication providing other research teams with the information and an
evaluation of the possibilities of geocoding based on public, open data
in Europe today.

Several questions:

- Should/can I start a table on [1] ? Is there a better place ?
- Does anyone have knowledge of similar data sets in other European
countries ?
- Does anyone have knowledge of already existing inventories on such data ?

Any feedback is more than welcome !

Moritz

Hello Moritz,

Geodata Discovery and geocoding are two different things.On the OSGeo
wiki there is an (outdated) page on opengeocoder.
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OpenGeocoder maybe that can be a starting
point for you?

About the services you mention: I am currently in the process of
importing BAG address data into OpenStreetMap, particulary for the
nominatim geocoding service
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim

Perhaps OpenStreetMap might be a good place to hold global address
data? I think it might. But of course other ideas are most welcome!

Good luck on your project and good to see you are addressing the
addressing issue ;-)
