Did you know that every address has loads of hidden data buried in its metadata? In this webinar, we briefly considered the value of breaking an address into its component parts. Then we looked at the different metadata available and provided definitions for each one. And finally, we went over use cases and ideas on how to leverage metadata for improved operations, business intelligence, and financial performance.
Every address contains basic components that are standardized by country. In the US, the components are:
▢ Primary Number
▢ Pre Direction
▢ Street Name
▢ Street Suffix
▢ Post Direction
▢ Secondary Designator
▢ Secondary Number
▢ ZIP Code
While each of these is valuable, there’s knowledge and data available that’s associated with every address. It’s THAT data—categorized as Root, Components, Metadata, and Analysis—that can bring a new life and a wealth of information to your address database.
Address metadata is simply information about an address. Smarty provides up to 45 points of metadata for every address.
Because there is a lot of metadata and the webinar promised to be a short one, we only went over 9 of the data points that are offered, as indicated with yellow arrows in the image below:
