Subject: NGDA Address Theme Description approved by the FGDC Steering Committee
The Steering Committee approved the following NGDA Address Theme description.
The Address Theme consists of the data elements, attributes, and metadata that specify a fixed geographic location by reference to a thoroughfare or landmark, or specify a point of postal delivery, or both. The address theme does not include information about occupants or addressees nor does it include the attribute information about any features that may be specified by an address point. The address theme may include linkages to these feature attributes and other location reference methods.
This description will be added to the FGDC website and Geospatial Platform NGDA Address Community page.
