A SURVEY OF NATIONAL GEOCODING SYSTEMS

The document describes major geocoding systems. It is organized into sections that categorize geocoding systems by type. Section 2 deals with systems that are primarily geopolitical in nature and provide general reference coding structures for administrative or other purposes. Section 3 includes those geocoding systems that reference either special significance locations or a combination of geopolitical, geostatistical and special significance locations. The geocoding systems in Section 4 include those that reference areas delineated according to special criteria, such as economic or postal distribution patterns. Finally, Section 5 discusses those systems based on grid networks.
