Geoscape: G-NAF Core
The Official single table Geocoded National Address File
G-NAF Core makes accessing geocoded addresses easier.
It provides the core richness and power of G-NAF in a comprehensive, but easy-to-use format.
We build G-NAF Core using G-NAF, our geocoded national address file, which distils over 50 million contributed addresses into more than 15.2 million G-NAF addresses.
G-NAF Core reduces the complexity of G-NAF by delivering the data in a simplified table model. G-NAF’s approximately 50 tables are cut to two: one for current addresses and one for retired addresses. This reduces the need to select fields and build data relationships to access G-NAF’s essential address data, making it easier to use with less technical effort.
– GNAF_CORE_GDA2020 (Latitude and Longitude derived using GDA2020 datum in all tables within this schema)
– GNAF_CORE_GDA94 (Latitude and Longitude derived using GDA94 datum in all tables within this schema)
Each schema has 2 tables
– GNAF_CORE: Includes all active records
– GNAF_CORE_RETIRED: Includes all records that are no longer active
Attributes across both schemas and tables are identical. Key attributes include:
– ADDRESS_DETAIL_PID: A persistent identifier unique to each address
– ADDRESS_LABEL: A formatted, readable address label combining address elements into a single descriptive string.
– LEGAL_PARCEL_ID: Land parcel identifier.
– LONGITUDE: Longitude of the address.
– LATITUDE: Latitude of the address.
G-NAF Core is for all.
