Major Update to Our Geocoding and Autocomplete Search Data
We just updated the underlying data for our recent Geocoding and Autocomplete Search APIs.
With this release, our city and postal code data for over 50 million US addresses has significantly improved in terms of completeness, accuracy, and searchability.
Improved Quality and What This Means for Users
These improvements offer distinct advantages compared to our competitors' similar APIs in two key areas:
Enhanced Address Formatting
The results for US addresses will now more closely align with the preferred format recognized by the United States Postal Service, ensuring greater consistency and accuracy in address representation.
When searching for addresses that have multiple colloquially used city names, users can effectively find the desired addresses by using these additional names, improving your search capabilities and overall user experience.
