AddressBC is a member-driven initiative to build an authoritative, accurate, and accessible point-based civic address registry for British Columbia. Address data is contributed directly from Society members via GeoShare, the Society’s automated data delivery system. The disparate address datasets are then integrated into a single point-based feature class, AddressBC.
Address providers and address users alike benefit from having a single source of accurate civic address locations. Emergency planners, regional service providers, utilities, and other users are able to retrieve data from AddressBC in a useable, consistent form, helping to streamline service delivery to constituents and consumers.
