Abstract. The address is quasi geospatial data representing the location. There are various ways of address formats, addressing and managing addresses around the world. The Korean address system has been changed from the area-based address system to the street-based address system, which has been implemented since 2014. According to the Ministry of the Interior and Security of Korea, the street-based address aims at the convenience of directions, rapid response to emergencies, reduction of logistics costs, and strengthening national competitiveness. However, there are limitations in Korea's street-based address system. In this study, we define the components of address systems and analyse the street-based address system of Korea based on the defined elements.
