The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is conducting a public review of proposed revisions to the United States Thoroughfare, Landmark and Postal Address Data Standard (Address Data Standard). The primary purposes of the Address Data Standard are to develop content specifications for address information, provide classifications for different types of addresses, establish appropriate standards and measures for evaluation of address data quality, and support exchange of address data. The FGDC endorsed the Address Data Standard in 2011, and numerous federal, state and local government agencies have since used it to manage their address data. Over the last five years, users and the authors identified a number of desirable minor corrections to the Address Data Standard. Additionally, the U.S. Census Bureau, as the maintenance authority for the Standard, has proposed adding a new Map Position element. Reviewers are requested to review and comment on the proposed revisions and/or submit additional comments on the Address Data Standard. The draft revision of the standard may be downloaded from: https:// www.fgdc.gov/standards/projects/FGDC-standards-projects/stree t-address/ AddressDataStandardRevised. The change log lists proposed changes identified since publication of the Address Data Standard in 2011. These changes are reflected in the version of the standard posted for the 2015 maintenance review and are subject to the official public review and adjudication process. The change log may be downloaded from https://www.fgdc.gov/standards/projects/FGDC- standards-projects/street-address/ChangeLog2011-2015. The proposal for the Map Position element may be downloaded from https://www.fgdc.gov/standards/projects/FGDC-standards-projec ts/street- address/MapPositionProposal.
