    Organizations often have detailed specifications about the 
structure of their address information but have not defined the 
elements that constitute an address. Knowledge of structure, content, 
and quality is required to successfully share information in a digital 
environment. The United States Thoroughfare, Landmark, and Postal

    The United States Thoroughfare, Landmark, and Postal Address Data 
Standard applies to addresses of entities having a spatial component. 
It does not apply to addresses of entities lacking a spatial component 
and specifically excludes electronic addresses such as e-mail 
addresses. It recognizes that some organizations are prohibited by 
statute from sharing addresses or other address information, due to 
requirements for confidentiality and security: Therefore, it does not 
require that addresses be shared and does not provide guidelines for 
determining whether addresses can be shared. The United States 
Thoroughfare, Landmark, and Postal Address Data Standard places no 
requirement on internal organization of use or structure of address 
data: however, its principles can be extended to all addresses.
