Product Update: Address verification for each Australian state and territory

Easily integrate authoritative address verification into web applications with our Predictive Address Verification API, which now includes optional filtering by Australian state or territory.

We’ve released a new version of our Predictive Address Verification API that includes the option to filter address predictions by state and territory. It will be useful for those customers or use cases, where you’re only concerned with addresses in certain states or territories.

By defining one or more states or territories in prediction calls, address prediction returns in response to user input, are limited to those that fall within these boundaries. The predictions better reflect the likely required address. If no state or territory is defined, predictions returned continue to reflect all possible Australian addresses.

So, for example, if you’re only interested in verifying New South Wales addresses, you can now configure PSMA’s Predictive Address Verification API to limit the scope of address predictions to reflect your need.

Plans and Pricing for the Predictive Address Verification API are detailed at the PSMA Developer Portal, where you can also register and get an API key.

The new version of the API is 100% backwards compatible, with more detail obtainable from the API documentation.

The option of state and territory filtering of address predictions has been introduced in response to feedback from our API users. We have more filtering options coming soon, including the ability to filter predictions by Local Government Area (LGA).

The Predictive Address Verification API delivers authoritative, national address data live from the source direct to the user. It’s built upon the daily-updated dataset that drives G-NAF Live and can easily integrate into your web applications to bring address verification to your business processes and solutions.
