4.1.4. Address attribution

For the general rules of assigning house numbers, see Section 3.5.2.2. Number.

4.1.4.1. Number

Enter the house number as the “Official” name.

Follow these rules when entering numbers:

4.1.4.1.1
Abbreviations that you should use in the address:
  • “”Does not apply

  • “”Does not apply

  • building → “bdg.”
  • Building → “Bldg”

  • Structure → “Stru”

  • Does not apply“”

  • “”“”Does not apply

    Use abbreviations in addresses of buildings under construction

    After a building under construction gets an official address, you can delete the previous one from the map. If the abbreviation is still in use locally though, you can leave it there.

  • “”Does not apply

  • “”Does not apply

    Does not apply

    Does not apply

    • Does not apply

    • “”Does not apply

    • Does not apply “”

    • Does not apply “”“” “”

    Does not apply“ ” “ ” “ ” “ ”

  • apartment → “apt”

    Used in addresses of private homes that consist of two or more parts with individual entrances and (usually) a separate plot of land. In these cases you can write the apartment number if the official address is listed on cadastral maps.

    In these addresses, you can abbreviate “Apartment” as “apt” (for example, 39 Sovetskaya St., apt. 1).

  • section → “sec”

    Does not apply

    Only use the “sec” abbreviation when entering addresses for cemetery plots and in cases where its absence would result in duplicate addresses:

    If the houses in a locality, cottage settlement, or farming co-op do not have addresses but the land plots are numbered and basically stand in for addresses, then write these numbers without using the "sec" abbreviation.

  • Does not apply“”

    Does not apply

4.1.4.1.2

Only use characters from the language you are using to enter addresses. In English, you should only use characters from the Latin alphabet.

    • letters; for example: 27lits, where And – character.
4.1.4.1.4

If corner buildings have an address written with a forward slash or have two different addresses (one for each street), then create address points for each of the corresponding streets. Enter Official and Also known as names for each address.

If a fraction is used in the form of the address used locally (including on signage), then the official name should include the forward slash (and the name without the sign should be entered under "also known as").

If a number with no slash is used locally, then enter the official name without one (and use the slash for the "also known as" option).

Also see point 3.5.2.2.5.

Note.

If the "also known as" name is exactly the same as the other address on the same street, don't enter it.

Examples of addresses:
  • 12 Planernaya St., Bldg. 7
  • 12А Svyazistov St., Bldg. 7
  • 12А Karbysheva St., Block A
  • 87А Varshavskoe Hwy
