How PSMA data is used
Geocoding and related services
NAVIGATE has developed AusAddress, the first geocoder based solely on the G-NAF points, with up to a 15% improvement on geocoding. AusAddress is an ArcGIS extension that uses the ESRI’s built-in geocoder. It includes customised configuration files to interpret Australian address syntax and conventions such as ‘202/10-12 Clarke St’ and a set of tools to simplify the location and identification of addresses. It has single and bulk geocoding capability as well the ability to display the address of a user’s mouse click in the ArcMap window. NAVIGATE can also geocode your addresses as a cost-effective service, if required.
Composite datasets: In addition to PSMA data, NAVIGATE combines and re-markets other commercial datasets in a variety of formats. These include:
- over 800,000 geocoded business records
- 1,500 geocoded shopping centre records
- Australian Bureau of Statistics datasets, including Census information when released
- lifestyle segmentation and household spending and
- household and consumer data.
All this information is geocoded by NAVIGATE, as required, and made available in national, regional and thematic selections. NAVIGATE not only adds value to PSMA data, we look for ways to help our clients get the maximum benefit from their data and spatial technology.
