The goal is geo-referencing of addresses to small-scale geographies (streets). Sources for addresses include over 30 independent data providers who format and process data in different ways prior to delivery to GPS. The challenge for this organization is to efficiently integrate these disparate forms of addresses in a manner that permits their successful geo-referencing. This research introduced the application of principles and methods from operations research to improve this process.
