U.S. lags behind the developed world with lack of national address database -

FOREST HILL, MARYLAND - On October 27th, the White House released The Open Government Partnership - Third Open Government National Action Plan for the United States of America.

Chris Diller, President of the National States Geographic Information Council, stated "Address data are duplicated more often than any other type of data produced by government agencies, and the duplication happens at every level of government. We are hopeful that this Federal initiative will result in a coordinated effort to support state and local government addressing authorities in the compilation and maintenance of a National Address Database that provides open access to current and complete authoritative address data for every structure and landmark in the United States."
