Why is the MAR Important?

  • The MAR has established a unified addressing standard. It allows the District Government to easily compare information about an address, block or intersection across databases and agencies.
  • Addressing standards are built into the MAR.
  • It has tools that allow for geocoding and information retrieval regarding addresses, intersections and blocks that enforce the standards.
  • MAR simplifies crosscutting queries by address within the DC Government.
