Europa Technologies has enhanced the address search capabilities of its viaEuropa API with artificial intelligence (AI) based strategies. The use of AI methods improves search and geocoding accuracy, especially for incomplete or poor-quality addresses. The viaEuropa API provides premise level address search using several data products including OS AddressBase Core/Plus/Premium (optionally including AddressBase Islands Plus/Premium), OSNI Pointer, Royal Mail PAF and AddressHub – a new enhanced PAF product from Europa Technologies.
viaEuropa is the award-winning hosted map and API platform from Europa Technologies. It delivers high quality, fully maintained, digital maps and location data directly to web applications, desktop GIS and mobile apps. With a range of customers including commercial and public sector organisations, the viaEuropa service is under a programme of continuous improvement. The use of AI in address search is a powerful example of the company’s nimble and innovative approach.
Warren Vick, Founder & Director of Europa Technologies, commented: “Across all the industries we serve, it is common to see poor quality address data. Based on extensive real-world training data, we are excited to enhance viaEuropa with new AI-powered strategies which will improve accuracy and match rates for both interactive search and batch geocoding.”
