"BELGIAN STREETS AND ADDRESSES" (BEST) AVAILABLE AS OPEN DATA
The DG Digital Transformation provides a consolidated file of the address data of the 3 Regions in the form of open data. This project is the result of an intense collaboration between the various regional and federal public services.
These XML files contain the official addresses (street names + street numbers and postal codes) with their corresponding geographical coordinates, and can be reused free of charge by citizens, companies and other interested parties, as long as the source is mentioned. The files do not contain any personal data.
"According to the Open Data Task Force, this is an important step in the reuse of public sector information," says Bart Hanssens, interoperability expert for the federal service integrator at DG Digital Transformation. "Not only does this data set perform well in international comparisons, but these frequently requested files are also very useful, for example, to check the correct spelling of street names or to match many other data in geographical applications. »
Bart Hanssens also sees opportunities to work with data from the outset: "At the annual Open Summer of Code event in July 2019, BOSA's DG TD will have open source tools developed by a team of enthusiastic students. The code from these applications can then be reused free of charge.
