Perfect Address Software Developer's Kit - Programmer Information

Build transparent address verification and ZIP+4 (9-digit ZIP code) lookup into your own programs with this powerful Dynamic Link Library!

ZIP code (ZIP+4) lookup program with city, state, street address, area code, county name and county FIPS code, and current time for every city in the USA
Overview
The Perfect Address Software Developer's Kit gives Windows programmers the tools needed to build transparent address verification and ZIP+4 lookup into all types of Windows programs.

The SDK contains:

  • 32-bit and 64-bit (x64) search engine for access to the address database via C/C# or similar languages
  • Programmer's Guide
  • Several sample programs written in Microsoft C, Visual Basic, and other languages
  • A header file for use with C compilers
  • One current national address database

Applications
The DLL search engine can be invoked from Visual Basic, Access, dBase, Paradox, Delphi, C/C++, Alpha Five, Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, etc..


Networks
The search engine is network-aware and can be used in a network environment.


Perfect Address SDK Address Matching and Standardization
The Perfect Address SDK search engine employs advanced address matching techniques to ensure the best possible accuracy when it is used to clean up a "dirty" address database.


City, State, ZIP
The search engine places special emphasis on determining the correct city and state. The search engine employs modified soundex routines to correlate the city and state, if present. The search engine understands "alias" city names, whether approved for mail delivery or not, correcting the city name to that preferred by the Postal Service where an unapproved name is found. When the search engine finds a valid city and state combination no ZIP code is necessary.

If the city and state are missing from the address, the search engine can usually match an address even if provided only an incorrect 5-digit ZIP code (within certain limits, of course).


Street Address
The search engine employs advanced parsing and soundex routines to analyze, correct, and standardize street addresses. It finds and corrects misspelled street names, missing and/or misspelled street suffixes and missing pre and post directionals. It checks for known alias street names, correcting the address to the preferred street name. It detects and corrects numeric street names which are spelled out (tenth for 10th), as well as fully spelled directionals (EAST for E) and suffixes (DRIVE for DR).

The parsing routines cleanly combine or separate misused street name elements (BROAD WAY for BROADWAY, or SOUTHWESTERN AVE for S WESTERN AVE). The search engine accepts many forms of secondary addresses, including # (as in 425 Medical Dr # 118), correcting to the secondary type appropriate for that address (APT, STE, etc.). It recognizes many corrupted forms of PO Box, Rural Route, Highway Contract, and General Delivery. The search engine even recognizes the Spanish form of many addresses!


ZIP+4, Congressional District, Delivery Point Bar Code, County Name and County FIPS Code, Area Code, Time Zone and Daylight Saving Time Flag
Having matched and standardized an address, the search engine also provides the ZIP+4, congressional district, delivery point (POSTNET) bar code, county name and county FIPS code, area code, time zone, and daylight saving time flag for that address.


ZIP Code and ZIP+4 Lookup
The search engine provides two special "reverse search" functions which are used to find the city and state or full address associated with a ZIP code. If you call the search engine with a 5-digit ZIP code, it returns the preferred city name and state for that ZIP code. If you call the search engine with a full ZIP+4, it returns the address or address range to which that ZIP+4 applies.
