Prerequisite

This article assumes you know how to use field formats to normalize and format your data in Parseur. Check out this article for more information.

Important

Parsing addresses will cost one additional credit for each address parsed in a document.

For example if your document contains 2 fields with an Address format, Parseur will charge 3 credits:

  • 1 credit for parsing the base document
  • and 1 credit for parsing each of the 2 addresses

Address format

Parseur can automatically parse and normalize an address location. It can also fill in the gaps for partial addresses, determine coordinates and provide a google map link.

Example: Say you have the following address in your document: 500 Chartres Street Appt 34, New Orleans

Capturing that address in a field named "Location" with an Address format will give you the following results:

  • Location.original: 500 Chartres Street Appt 34, New Orleans
  • Location.normalized: 500 Chartres St #34, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA
  • Location.number: 500
  • Location.street: Chartres St
  • Location.address1: 500 Chartres St
  • Location.address2: #34
  • Location.city: New Orleans
  • Location.zip: 70130
  • Location.county: Orleans Parish
  • Location.state: Louisiana
  • Location.state_code: LA
  • Location.country: United States
  • Location.country_code: US
  • Location.found: True
  • Location.lat: 29.9558754
  • Location.lng: -90.065056
  • Location.map: link

In case Parseur is not able to determine the address, it will set the found flag to false. Result will look like this:

  • Location.original: 220 Strangely named road
  • Location.found: False
  • Location.normalized: 220 Strangely named road
