Address data covering the entire country plays an important role in GIS applications. IPC’s address data reflects the latest municipal mergers and administrative boundaries, ranging from prefectures to house numbers, with municipalities, districts and streets in between. The data also supports multiple languages.

Geocoding Service

IPC can add latitude and longitude coordinates to addresses provided by customers. Spelling variations (e.g. 「ヶ」 or 「ケ」, 「の」 or 「ノ」 ) in address character strings can be handled appropriately. Output data will show the level of detail of each address, such as the street or house number. This solution is perfect for displaying an address list on a map in customer management or area-specific marketing activities.
