About Placekey

Placekey is a free and open universal standard identifier for any physical place so that the data pertaining to those places can be shared across organizations easily.

Placekey creates a common industry standard for identifying any physical place. Eventually, there will be a Placekey for every place in the world, even those without a postal address (school district, county, neighborhood, etc.).

However, Placekey goes beyond just an identifier. It’s a movement of organizations and individuals that prize access to data. Placekey members want geospatial data that is easily joined and combined…because real answers come from combining data from many different sources. It is a philosophy that data should be easy to access and data should not be hoarded. These m...

Simple, Fast, and Free Address Standardization tool

We acquire address datasets from different providers and try and combine them into a single dataset. The major issue we have with this process is that addresses are often either redundant or formatted differently. By just appending Placekeys to our datasets we solve both of these issues with ease.

Pros

The best thing about Placekey is that it offers some of the best quality address standardization, completely free.

Cons

Its hard to think of anything to dislike with Placekey. When it was first presented to me I was a little bit suspicious of the quality we would receive from a free product, but I have been blown away by how it just works universally - other expensive address standardization tools often have issues with at least a few addresses in our datasets, but we have yet to find an address that Placekey can’t handle.

Makes validating customer provided addresses extremely simple!

Customers sometimes format their addresses differently than our database does, so Placekey helps us validate the two datasets despite the existing formatting differences.

Pros

Placekey allows us to easily check customer-entered addresses against our larger databases - even if the custoemr doesn't type in the same address we have in our records.

Cons

No real complaints. On occasion, it takes time to process a high number of request, but it's still fast and efficient enough to us. And it's free, so definitely worth it!

Free Address Standardization

Placekey is great because the key system fixes the issues with our raw address data and makes finding redundant entries, previously a challenging and time-consuming task, very easy.

Pros

Placekey does a good job supporting its users through indepth, documentation and through support from their community. It is extremely easy to get in touch with a representative to assist with technical issues, as a result, we were able to get our API integration up and running well ahead of schedule.

Cons

Really can't think of anything I "dislike". We have had issues with address verification providers not covering some of the addresses in our databases - but Placekey doesn't have this problem at all.
