Italian civic addresses and the quest for accuracy
In Italy, StudioSit srl has built up its own toponymy geodatabase
STUDIO SIT and Location srl was conceived of in 1991, the dim and distant past for many. Involved with the surveying and mapping of southern european civic numbering, the Ligurian company has been able to exceed a high degree of accuracy , completeness and updating, unique in this sector, which traditionally lacks the availability of good quality toponymy data.
The quality of toponymy data has come increasingly under the microscope in recent years. These augmentations infiltrating the sector now require extremely accurate, up-to-date and comprehensive data, most crucially in respect of, for example, deliveries, automatic driving projects, emergency services and applications inherent in civil protection.
For suppliers such as HERE Technologies and TOMTOM involved with the surveying and mapping of Italian civic numbering, the company has been able to exceed a 95% degree of accuracy, completeness and updating, unique in this country, which traditionally lacks the availability of good quality toponymy opendata.
