Principle 2, geocoding, guidelines, national geocoding standard
According to GSGF Europe, Member States should develop and apply national guidelines for geocoding workflows in order to ensure a consistent and conform result within and between institutions. This use case provides a concrete example on what such guidelines may comprise.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has prepared guidance material to provide national guidelines for geocoding of statistical information. The guidelines cover three of the main options for geocoding of unit record data in socio-economic datasets. The guidelines describe the basic elements and processes applied when implementing these three options, and provides references to resources associated with them. The geocoding standards and guidelines are part of ABS’ Statistical Geospatial Framework guidance material.
