Spatial Data Team | 23 Aug 2017

The August 2017 release of the Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF) and Administrative Boundaries datasets are now available for download.

We encourage users of the data to update to the latest versions.

We also thank users for providing feedback via a recent survey on the openly available G-NAF and Administrative Boundaries. Of the responses received:

Respondents indicated they are using the G-NAF data for a wide range of purposes including, planning transport services; developing new mapping applications; developing new insurance products and services for specific coverage areas; better utilisation of geocoding for property based services; integrating the data into existing business operations; and providing third party geocoded services.

This feedback provides a more in-depth understanding of the innovation, efficiencies and productivity achieved through access to the high-value spatial data.

Thank you also to those that have provided case studies of your organisations’ use of the open G-NAF and/or Administrative Boundaries datasets. Additional case studies can be forwarded to
