Address Location Service

The NSW Address Location Service web service allows the user to enter an address and pinpoint the location of that address.

The NSW Address Location Service is derived from the Geocoded Urban and Rural Address System (GURAS) database.

This web service allows users to easily integrate NSW addressing information into spatial platforms and applications.

The addressing web service provides users with a unique and unambiguous identification of an address site and its location within NSW. The ability to identify the location of an address supports a wide range of business functions including: the delivery of products and services, public safety, communication and socio-economic and demographic analysis.

The GURAS database is the authoritative property addressing system for NSW.

NOTE: Please contact the Customer HUB for advice on datasets access.
