I don't think regular expressions will help you here, because its designed for pattern matching rather than semantic interpretation, so your string.split() function will probably do as well. But without a database to compare each token against, it'd be pretty hard to determine what level a token represents. If, for instance the right-most token is Zealand, ...

From the Google Maps help on how to Fix an error on Google Maps: Help us make Maps better Community edits allow you to modify the information you see on Google Maps, making it more accurate for everyone.

the data you are looking for is the field names for street name, adress range right and adress range left. usually in seperate fields as ... Lmin, Lmax the direction the street was digitized determines the left and right side which puts the min values at the approriate end of the segment. It is very time consuming to re-engineer a shape file to have correct ...

It is possible that the attributes necessary are available in the shapefile to do a reverse address lookup, but it's not required. I've seen shapefiles that didn't have any data other than the shape, so there's no guarantee that enough data will be available for you to perform a lookup with the shapefile alone.

Reverse Geocode (Geocoding) Creates addresses from point locations in a feature class. The reverse geocoding process searches for the nearest address or intersection for the point location based on the specified search distance. In ArcMap, the tool is located under Geocoding Tools. Note that you'll need to have an address locator to reverse ...

Let me point out first that there are also addresses that the US Post Office doesn't deliver to at all. Not even to a common mail receptacle or group of mailboxes. Certainly anyone can get a PO box at the nearest Post Office. Many times, a remote, or extremely rural address will still be serviced by UPS or Fedex. The USPS designates each ZIP Code with a ...

The only publicly available source of actual addresses per street segment is the PAD file -- the Property Address Directory -- from the New York City Dept of City Planning. If you rely on centerline files such as TIGER or LION, these will provide hypothetical address ranges. The centerline data may be ok(and often is), but if you need to know the valid ...

What you need are indexes. You may have indexes on your tables right now but since you're using ST_TRANSFORM they're not being used. Indexing on transform is even mentioned on the function's page: http://postgis.net/docs/ST_Transform.html CREATE INDEX idx_address_3112 ON address_list USING gist (ST_Transform(wkb_geometry, 3112)) CREATE INDEX ...

I work at SmartyStreets, a licensed CASS™ vendor of USPS address data (though here I speak unofficially). What you want to do sounds exactly like what we do. The USPS ZIP+4 file is available from many sellers, but you're right: it only contains about 30-40 million records. We sometimes call it the "ranges" file because it contains address data at a ...

you can try gisgraphy. it includes an address parser, a geocoder, and a reverse geocoder. (dont use the free service for batch, but install it on your server). fulltextsearch with synomyms, spellchecking can probably helps too. there is no problems if you need high volumes, because gisgraphy is available as webservices with several format (XML, JSON, PHP, ...

What information is in the sql-table? Are you saying it is a sql spatial table or just a listing of building names with addresses? if just addresses you would need to use the geocoding tool in arcmap.

This may vary depending on where in the US you are, but typically as part of the development process addresses are assigned by the city/county assessor around the time the plat is recorded. I don't think it's so much a case of 'validating' as getting updated data, just like your geocoding vendor. It sounds like the post office has more recently updated their ...

The Google Places API might be useful here: The Google Places API is a service that returns information about Places — defined within this API as establishments, geographic locations, or prominent points of interest — using HTTP requests.

QR Codes 'could' replace addresses (house numbers etc) http://delivr.com/qr-code-generator as they can can be applied to even down to equipment in a datacenter - all with location embedded. It is just how it is managed that is the barrier.

In light of my comment on MerseyViking's answer, I thought I'd elaborate just for clarity and completeness. I work in the address parsing/verification industry for SmartyStreets. What you're trying to do, I think, is called "Single-line address processing" (we call it SLAP). It's a complicated task, though, because addresses will inevitably be very, very ...

Google's Terms of Use does not permit commercial (esp. automated) use of the data. Yes, Google appears to parse single-line street addresses and geocodes them, but it is not appropriate for commercial purposes as Mapperz has noted. Also, standardizing addresses will be a bit of a bugger with Google's API. Google Maps is an address approximation service, not ...

Address standardization (AKA address correction, address normalization, address parsing) is not a simple task. If you have swift fingers and ample creativity, a very fine REGEX can be concocted that can do a remarkably good job. However, it doesn't handle very well the edge cases where the results can be ambiguous. The reason is a lack of context. You ...

I have some experience with this. At SmartyStreets (where I work), we make address verification software called LiveAddress. (It's actually all web-based; no need to download or install it.) The challenges of validating and standardizing addresses are plenty, I assure you. It gets even trickier when you attempt to parse the address into particular ...

Consider yourself lucky for having received an error message :-) I ran into a similar problem after changing the path names for some of my shapefiles. My computer is brand new and ArcMap does not necessarily get hung up in your hardware. Its own complexity could be more than enough. Look up ArcMap in the Windows Reliability logging system on Windows ...

If you uncheck the "Case sensitive" option at bottom of attribute table, write in the "Look for" space and select the field of interest, you can get coincident rows highlighted (If you know the exact word you can leave the "Case sensitive" option checked). After that you can use "Show selected only" to view in screen only the rows that match with you ...

The absolute highest geographic resolution for household income that is publicly available is at the block group level. The Census Bureau has provided an easy resource for this information here. Be careful, though, this level of geography suffers greatly from margin of error issues. I would recommend pulling information at the census tract level.

You could try Nominatim from OpenStreetMap: Nominatim (from the Latin, 'by name') is a tool to search OSM data by name and address and to generate synthetic addresses of OSM points (reverse geocoding). It can be found at http://nominatim.openstreetmap.org You may need to write the wrapper functionality to allow uploading of a text file.
