National geocoding has lagged far behind urban geocoding. Semantic confusion is endemic to both, but macrolevel geocoding has more diversity and specialization than microlevel geocoding because of the lack of geographic building block units for national geocoding. National systems can be classified by principal application into four categories, but information exchange, even among those of the same class, is not necessarily possible. A converter has been designed to permit association of variously coded data sets based on the county as a common unit, and some standardization and convertibility among systems has been implemented. /Author/
