City and Locality Address Register

The inhabitants of many cities and localities have been already accustomed to the problem of location of building No. 23 near their building No. 13 and lack of buildings No. 15, 17, 19 and 21.

Generally, this problem is exacerbated by the need to find those buildings No. 15, 17, 19, etc., buildings to visit the pharmacy, store, apartment or something else to your taste.

ЗGreen indicates the buildings, actually referred to Respublica Avenue while red – to Internatsionalnaya street. Red indicates the buildings, actually referred to Pobeda Avenue while green – to Jangildin street. Ironically, number 65 A on Pobeda Avenue is assigned to Astana “Address bureau”.

That moment person thinks for a minute about who is still assigning numbers for buildings and remembers this unknown for him/her way (organization, person or whatever comes to mind this moment) unkindly.

With the assistance of residents, taxi driver or someone else after all the building is found and the finder remembers its location forever.

It is even worse if you need to find the building in Shkolnaya, Stroitelnaya, Naberezhnaya or Rechnaya Street.

If you are not lucky and you will not find this building in this street, take it easy, there are still one or two streets with the same name. Looking for the twins you may seek help of postmen, taxi drivers, paramedics or policemen but nowadays not everyone will give a helping hand to another person.

However, there is no guarantee that one or another found street will be regular or at least curved with two building fronts. If you look attentively you can find streets with tree-like, parting structure or breaks.

Let us consider economic aspect of the issue. The basis of calculation will cover the following indices:

Loss of time when searching for a conditional wrong object, min. 20
Number of buildings with wrong address 100
Number of visiting conditional building per year 20
Average wages per month, tenge 30000

Total annual conditional loss is 20*100*20*30,000/22/8 = 6,818,181 tenge.

As you have probably noticed this calculation is conditional but at the same time the indices are quite optimistic given the fact that Astana, for example, has more than 70,000 buildings and structures as well as more than 800 streets which half has problems either with names or structure.

Now let us make conditional calculation using the example of “Address bureau” building.

Loss of time when searching for a conditional wrong object, min. 20
Number of buildings with wrong address 1
Number of visiting conditional building per day 20
Number of working days 250
Average wages of addressing people, per month, tenge 30000

Total annual conditional loss is 20*1*20*250*30,000/22/8 = 17,045,454 tenge

We get very interesting results. Don’t we? It is worth considering!

Address system, in our opinion, is necessary, first of all, for unique identification of item of immovable property on the locality territory providing address clarity as well as its fast finding in space.

We are ready and able to solve the problem of address system organization of any city including the following principal stages:

  1. Inventory of names of locality street and road network objects.
  2. Inventory of serial numbers of buildings and structures.
  3. Establishment and approval of rules for assigning serial numbers to buildings and structures by local executive body.
  4. Establishment of locality address register.
  5. Arrangement of address register maintenance system by authorized local executive body, institute or organization.

Our organization is ready to perform any step of this methodology which in its turn have been tested and implemented involving our employees in Astana.

It should be noted that used methodology of locality address register establishment and maintenance is based on the use of geo-information technologies which allows further expansion of the range of tasks using collected spatial information.
