Are there any free global address datasets I can use to test my geocoding application? I'm looking for a dataset that contains residential addresses from countries around the world. I don't need a name, just a street address, region, country, and postal code (if the country uses postal codes). If it has a latitude and longitude for each address, that would be a plus.

I saw this question but I'm wondering if anything has changed since it was answered.


  • Try this answer, maybe? (Works only for US addresses but you might try a similar approach for different countries.) – Matt Nov 26 '13 at 22:01
