MAR Addresses on OpenAddresses.org

DC Addresses on OpenAddresses.org
(see the big red blob)


The MAR addresses have been uploaded to the Openaddress.org. DC GIS staff contacted OpenAddresses.org and informed them about our MAR address data set. Shortly thereafter, they successfully uploaded our addresses (see big red blob on the above image).
OpenAddresses describes itself "as an Open Source web portal for the management of Open worldwide geolocated postal addresses. " Also see the NSGIC News Blog about OpenAddressses.org.
The benefits of having DC addresses on the OpenAddresses.org website are:
  • Joining and making our data available to the global community as part of OpenAddresses.org's efforts to make worldwide address data readily accessible.
  • To receive feedback on our address data quality
