An address is a collection of information, presented in a mostly fixed format, used for describing the location of a building, apartment, or other structure or a plot of land, generally using political boundaries and street names as references, along with other identifiers such as house or apartment numbers.

Some addresses also contain special codes to aid routing of mail and packages, such as a ZIP code or post code.
