Landgate AVS

Landgate AVS (Address Verification Service) is a web service designed to enable business and Government to verify address information against authoritative street address data and to help meet Australian standards for the storage and exchange of street address information.

Improved address information has the potential to provide significant savings and efficiencies for business and across Government.  Customer contact by address is critical to WA Government agencies and commercial enterprises and the impact of incorrect address information can be very costly.

Landgate AVS comprises two distinct but complimentary offerings;

  • Landgate AVS - Batch
  • Landgate AVS - Point of Entry (PoE)

Landgate AVS also acts as an enabler for WA Public Sector entities to comply with the  Address Management Policy (AMP) [PDF 0.5MB]. Please see our Latest News article to learn more about the AMP and the Street Address Improvement Programme (SAIP).

Batch Verification

Businesses can engage with Landgate and supply their address file which is then verified using the Batch verification service. The verified address output file will be returned to the agency along with documentation on how to interpret the results. Landgate provides expert advice and consultancy to assist with correct formatting and understanding the results.

Point of Entry (PoE) Verification

To enable consistent data quality within a verified dataset, Landgate now have a PoE (Point of Entry) Address Verification web service available under annual access subscription terms. This service enables simple address verification at the point of entry where a single address is entered, validated and the correct or closest addresses returned. Agencies will need to do some development work in their environment to integrate and call the PoE web service from their application(s) and business systems. As with the Batch Bureau service, Landgate provides expert advice and consultancy to assist with setting custom PoE workflow requirements if so desired.
