Navigate releases optimised geocoder for ArcGIS

By on 24 September, 2013


Navigate has enhanced ESRI’s geocoding software by configuring it to support a wide variety of Australian address input styles, and fine tuning it to integrate with G-NAF.

The G-NAF Geocoding Kit has been configured to be extremely capable of dealing with common spelling mistakes and typos and has intelligence about vanity and neighbouring suburbs. The kit can also deal with individual units within a building to return a validated and matched address. Other useful attributes that are returned with the matched record include: the G-NAF PID; the Local Government Area Name; and ABS identifiers for 2011 SA1s and meshblocks.

“Using Navigate’s local knowledge of Australian address structures and our detailed understanding of both G-NAF and ArcGIS,” says Michael Stokes, MD of Navigate, “we have been able to combine the power and authority of the PSMA’s G-NAF with ESRI’s latest geocoding engine. Now, our users have the capability to geocode Australian addresses quickly, easily, and more efficiently giving, faster and more accurate results.”

The G-NAF Geocoding Kit is available now from Navigate.
