AtlasCapture

Overview

  • AtlasCapture is an advanced data capture tool that can be used to access Master Address Files (MAFs) such as Australia Post’s Postal Address File (PAF), the PSMA’s Geocoded National Address File (G-NAF) or NZ Post’s GeoPAF.
  • Enables the user to capture a complete and accurate address from a postcode and premise number or partial address, even if the postcode is unknown or the address is misspelt. Other features are also available including the ability to return keys and codes associated with an address and user-defined details. This facilitates the simultaneous capturing of addresses, names and additional required data.

Features

  • Retrieves full-premise and sub-premise information (e.g. flats, apartments) from a postcode or a partial address.
  • Captures the correct address where data is incomplete or hard to read.
  • Uses the latest and most powerful cross-matching and pick list technology.
  • List-based functionality allows the user to input from a single-line and navigate through the potential address matches.
  • Powerful gazetteer system enabling the user to manipulate their search criteria to maximise scrutiny of addresses.
  • Sends addresses directly to standard Windows applications such as Word or Excel.

  • When an accurate and complete address cannot be immediately identified it provides a selection of closest matches at both street and premise level.
  • Can be used to accurately capture addresses through web applications.
  • Allows user-defined address formatting.
  • Allows extra data fields to be captured in addition to names and addresses so that all information can be recorded and stored.
  • Allows user to interactively match against multiple MAFs.
