    Need Street Names List

    Wondering if there is a way to extract just a list of street names contained within a town or city from MapPoint 2010.

    Ideally, I would end up with a csv, txt or other data file that contains the names of all streets within a geagraphic area-town, city and/or polygon of my definition.

    Alternatively, is there a way to get a dump of all valid addresses within same geographic area.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    There might be a convoluted way, but it definitely isn't easy if there is. Note that this is also against the EULA and sub-licensing restrictions (hence no easy way of doing it in the API).

    I would suggest you get another database and extract your data from that. OpenStreetMaps would be a good starting point if you are financially restricted. Data quality and coverage might be variable. Other better quality databases are available but will cost money.

    Richard,

    Thank you for the advice. I suspected as much.

    I will look into OpenStreetMap. We are financially restricted, but do have a little bit of money and can buy data.

    Any sources that you recommend to get this kind of data?

    My reason for asking is that we are trying to develop a way to cleanse misspelled street names typed in by operators. Maybe we are going about this all wrong? Are there services out there there that can help us?
    If an operatore spells a street wrong, maybe we can query a webservice and get a response with a recommended, valid street address? Better yet, we actually need the lat/long.
    We don't have more than a dozen or so bad addresses a day, but they are killers. Hate to build some big cleansing facility if you can access one online.
    Ever heard of this? If so, can you reommend any websites or companies that would do this?

    I don't know of one off hand, but you might want to look at Geocoder.us .

    If they can't clean your data, then they might have databases or services that you could build on.


    Such databases will probably need some manipulation to get them into a form you can use efficiently.
    I've recently been going through this process with the GeoNames.org databases. These wouldn't have the street data you need, but they do have places and cities - this might be a partial solution.
