🔎 Address Parser: Libpostal and jpostal
The Address Parser uses Libpostal. This is an open source library for parsing and normalizing street addresses using a natural language processing model trained on global open source address data. To improve the performance of Libpostal, the Address Parser repository includes functionalities built on top of Libpostal, including the following:
- Country-specific Parsers
- Custom regex to extract particular fields
- Reference files of common terms
- Normalization of Elements
Libpostal is written in C. Using Libpostal in Scala or Java requires bindings provided by jpostal.
