Address Fabric

Address Fabric is a current and comprehensive list of all known country addresses. Each record is pre-geocoded to provide the most precise latitude and longitude coordinate location, including physical locations that are not deliverable by the postal service. The data is delivered in an easy to use flat file format that can be loaded into any database and analytics environment, or used with Pitney Bowes software such as MapInfo Pro™ and Spectrum™.

Each record contains the street address, coordinate location, FIPS code, U.S. Census information, and property type information for that addressable location.  Address genealogy known as parent/child relationships for primary and secondary addresses such as units, suites, and apartments are also included. Records are then assigned our unique and persistent identifier called the pbKey™ that can be used for data management and exchange, or appending enriched contextual information such as demographics, psychographics, property tax, and risk factors. With the pbKey, it’s possible to reference an address without storing the whole address string. Like a Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) number or unique Employer Identification Number (EIN), the pbKey is definitive.
