But our address data at the local level is so variable that it is often difficult to determine what the right address is. This webinar will review the new draft Address Data Standard. The Standard is being developed by URISA for the FGDC and talks about street addresses as data in terms of their content, classification, quality and exchange. Learn how using the standard will bring order and quality to your address data.
