I have been looking into implementing the FGDC street address data standards so that my address data is potentially consistent with other US data I obtain in the future. However, the FGDC documentation doesn't suggest actual names to name the fields.
I currently am using the following fields:
555 1 SW Main St, Ste B - ST_NUMBR: 555 - ST_NSFX: 1 - ST_PREFIX: SW - ST_PRETYPE: - ST_NAME: Main - ST_TYPE: ST - ST_POSTDIR: - ST_UNIT: Ste B
To be consistent, I should probably change the
ST_PREFIX field to
ST_PREDIR, but if I'm making changes I might as well know if there are other conventions I should be following.
Are there any standard or common names for such address fields?
