Ensure your address data is accurate. Streamline your online sales and service. Improve your customer experience.
Delivering products and services requires customer identity and delivery location to be validated. Address verification is essential for getting a product to the right place or a service to the right person.
But addresses change daily across Australia. New addresses are created, existing addresses are updated, and some are retired. It’s hard to keep up.
Geoscape address verification enables you to easily validate the address data you collect against daily updated and trusted sources.
What can I access?
Automatically validate address data as it’s entered in your online forms. Or clean and verify your entire address database at once.
This address validation service is embedded in online forms. It enables customers and staff to select an address from a list that is suggest to them as they type. The address fields in the form are autocompleted for the user. And the address data stored in your system is structured and verified.
The API also adds geographic coordinates to each address so they can be plotted on a map.
Upfront, automated address verification prevents data entry errors from entering your systems. Eliminate data issues with address validation at point of entry.
Batch address processing takes a large address dataset and cleans it to remove duplicate address records, typos and alias names. It validates the addresses against known addresses from trusted sources.
The process confirms if your customer supplied addresses are real and correct after they’ve entered your system. The output data is standardised and includes geographic coordinates for each address to enable location-based analysis.
Clean your database and avoid the cost of using invalid address data.
The Predictive API and Batch Processing validate addresses against fresh and trusted address data that includes all physical and mailing addresses in Australia.

How is Geoscape address verification built?
Longstanding supply agreements with Australia’s state and territory governments ensure we receive fresh address data as follows.
- Daily: ACT, NSW, WA, QLD, NT
- Weekly: SA, TAS, VIC
We use this to produce Australia’s most trusted national address dataset – the Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF), which includes more than 14 million physical addresses.
You can choose to validate the address data you collect against G-NAF, G-NAF Live or a dataset containing all mailing addresses in Australia. Or validate against all three at once.
No personal information is held in the data.
