Our aim at DataTools is to produce data quality software that can read and process data as easily as we do. Computers don’t intuitively do this, so we have developed advanced artificial intelligence (AI) models specifically tailored to understand the language of addresses.

Understanding an Address

Reading and understanding an address can seem quite simple, at least for humans. Let’s take this example.

17 Minto Avenue Epping VIC 3076

With some basic knowledge of Australian addresses, it’s easy to identify the separate pieces that makeup the address, thus giving the address some meaning.

Meaning and Context

So, you might be saying “this doesn’t look that hard” – and you’d be right, at least for the above example. But true meaning
doesn’t simply come from position or understanding words like AVENUE. True meanings also requires context.

668 Old Esk North Road South East Nanago QLD 4615

See how the directional words NORTH, SOUTH, and EAST have different meanings in this address.

Whilst your human brain may have been able to split the above example into the correct elements, an address like this can be difficult for software to interpret. 

Here are just few more real-life examples of how Australian addresses are formatted.

*All these addresses are sourced from Australia Post’s Postal Address File and are 100% accurate Australian addresses. Meaning is important, because until you derive meaning from an address it is very difficult to standardise, repair and use it to match against another address.
