JoinAddress: The Construction Plan of Our Sophisticated Geocoder

JoinAddress is a very flexible geocoder that can be adapted to your specific needs. This is due to its smart architecture. We would like to give you a look at the inside of our geocoding solution.

The heart and brain of the geocoder is the JoinAddress server. This is where the geocoding takes place based on an intelligent comparison logic. In addition, worldwide addresses are uniformly converted into exact coordinates. JoinAddress not only accesses its local database, but also uses its intelligence to search external databases, always with the goal in mind of finding the best X/Y coordinates for an address.

JoinAddress is also extremely flexible when it comes to how it is used. You can install the geocoder locally in your company or geocode online using a web client.

FAQ

  • How does geocoding software work?

    A geocoder is always a combination of software and geodata. The geocoding software JoinAddress contains the search and match logic. Regional geodatabases contain the exact reference addresses for a country or region including the best available coordinates at different spatial levels. The data is provided by land survey offices or private providers such as Post, TomTom or HERE.

  • Are language and other country-specific characteristics taken into account?

    Definitely! We prepare the data for each country taking into account any address rules and administrative factors. For example, when geocoding US addresses the State must be taken into account. French addresses use different abbreviations than English addresses. When geocoding Russian or Bulgarian addresses Cyrillic characters must be processed.

  • Can I combine an in-house geocoding solution with an online geocoding solution?

    Of course! You can use an in-house solution for your core markets, i.e. where you have many addresses, and our online services for all the other countries.

  • What happens if an address is not found or if a command yields several possible addresses?

    JoinAddress provides a probability value with each response. The software can be set so that if a certain probability is exceeded, the output is automatically accepted or a manual interaction is required.

  • For servers, JoinAddress runs on Windows and Linux. For clients, a web client is available (required: a modern web browser) or a Windows client.
