EURADIN: European Addresses Infrastructure
EURADIN (European Addresses Infrastructure) aims at constituting a Best Practice Network to promote the European Addresses harmonization.
INSPIRE Directive lays down general rules for the establishment of an infrastructure for spatial information in Europe, based on Spatial Data Infrastructures created by the Member States and that are made compatible and interoperable.
Addresses are part of Annex I of INSPIRE, and will therefore be part of the aforementioned European Spatial Data Infrastructures. Over the last decade it has become commonly acknowledged that good address systems constitute a very important part of a society’s infrastructure. In everyday life and in an infinite number of applications (Cartography, Cadastre, postal services, health and risk management, rescue services, Navigation tools, Transportation and logistics, emergency situations management, telecommunications, tourism…), addresses are used as a common reference. The number of these IT applications is very big, having as users both the public and private sector.
Given the importance of an Addresses Infrastructure as a useful tool for public and private services, it is logical to expect the European Union should have an adequate European Address Infrastructure allowing the access in a seamless and interoperable way tothe existing European Addresses. At this moment, nothing that could be considered as a European Address Infrastructure exists. From a European point of view, the lack of harmonization regarding European addresses definition, registration and access, prevents a European Addresses Infrastructure from being built, which consequently means that addresses cannot be adequately and extensively used, shared and exploited by European public and private sector.
EURADIN (European Addresses Infrastructure) aims at constituting a Best Practice Network to promote the European Addresses harmonization. The emphasis will be put in defining how access to existing address data should be made to ensure the interoperability of existing address data and working out a strategy on how to build up access services to national or regional addresses infrastructures. The project main result will be the proposal for the European addresses Infrastructure and the implementation, testing, and validation of a pilot European Addresses Infrastructure. The results shall be used as a reference for all European Member States to fulfil the INSPIRE recommendations with respect to addresses.
