Addresses

Our BuildingFootprintUSA™ Addresses product joins building footprint polygons with all known address information for each feature. We provide the best address information possible, for simple single family home, multi-unit dwellings or large office buildings with multiple secondary units, and address information from multiple streets.

Address Applications

We estimate that there are 140m-170m building footprints in the US. Building footprints or their derivatives will displace 75% of address point and parcel boundary usage as the primary ingredient for locating, analyzing and visualizing address information.

Addresses are used to:

  • Geocode
  • Reverse Geocode
  • Create High Accuracy Buffers or Geofences
  • To Connect Building Footprints to Other Address-based Data
