The addr tag is the prefix for several addr:* keys to describe addresses
- See also: Addresses
To provide address information for buildings and facilities. See Addresses for more details on usage.
Commonly used subkeys
|Tags for individual houses|
|addr:housenumber||user defined|| The house number (may contain non-digits).
If a single entry has multiple house numbers, you can use a range such as "1-12", or separate them by ";", such as "12b;12c". See Addresses for more detail.
Please do not only tag addr:housenumber=*, but also add at least addr:street=* (or map the belonging to a street with a relation).
|addr:housename||user defined|| The name of a house.
This is sometimes used in some countries like England instead of (or in addition to) a house number.
|addr:street||user defined|| The (main) name of the respective street.
A way with highway=* and the corresponding name should be found nearby. The belonging to a street can alternatively be represented by a associatedStreet relation. The keys addr:housenumber=* und addr:street=* in principle are the only necessary ones if there are valid border polygons. If you are not sure if it is so, just add addr:city=*, addr:postcode=* and addr:country=*. This is usually.
|addr:place||user defined||part of address, which is not related to street, but to some territorial zone, linear object, node or some abstract object.|
|addr:postcode||user defined||The postal code of the building/area.|
|addr:city||user defined||May or may not be a clone of is_in:city=* (in some places the city in the address corresponds to the post office that serves the area rather than the actual city, if any, in which the building is located)! The name of the city as given in postal addresses of the building/area.|
|addr:country||user defined|| The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 two letter country code in upper case.
Example: "DE" for Germany, "FR" for France, "IT" for Italy.
Caveat: The ISO 3166-1 code for Great Britain is "GB" and not "UK".. See also: is_in:country=*
|addr:full||user defined||Use this for a full-text, often multi-line, address if you find the structured address fields unsuitable for denoting the address of this particular location. Examples: "Fifth house on the left after the village oak, Smalltown, Smallcountry" or "1200 West Sunset Boulevard Suite 110A". Beware that these strings can hardly be parsed by software.|
|For countries using hamlet, subdistrict, district, province, state|
|addr:hamlet||user defined||The hamlet of the object.|
|addr:suburb||user defined||If an address exists several times in a city. You have to add the name of the settlement. See Australian definition of suburb.|
|addr:subdistrict||user defined||The subdistrict of the object.|
|addr:district||user defined||The district of the object.|
|addr:province||user defined||The province of the object.|
|addr:state||user defined||The state of the object. For the US, uppercase two-letter postal abbreviations (AK, CA, HI, NY, TX, WY, etc.) are used.|
|Tags for interpolation ways|
|addr:interpolation||all/even/odd/ alphabetic|| How to interpolate the house numbers belonging to the way along the respective street.
See detailed description.
|addr:interpolation||Number||Every nth house between the end nodes is represented by the interpolation way.|
|addr:inclusion||actual/estimate/potential|| Optional tag to indicate the accuracy level of survey used to create the address interpolation way.
See detailed description.

|Tags for parts of a building|
|addr:door||user defined|| The actual door to an apartment/flat/office/room. Also, normally a number, sometimes a name. Could also be called differently in some countries (In Austria for example it is sometimes referred to as "Top"). If a room has more than one door, you can tag them separately.
See also: room=*
|addr:flats||Number||See Apartment on Wikipedia|
|addr:floor||Number|| The floor an apartment/flat/office is located.
See also: level=*
|addr:unit||user defined||While a big building could have only one entrance, sometimes the way inside divides into different units or staircases, where certain apartments/flats/offices can only be reached though a specific unit. Useful for apartment, suite, or office numbers. An information necessary for postmen, for example.|
