Government of Mongolia Adopts the Universal Address System


Government of Mongolia has passed an important resolution to adopt the revolutionary technology of NAC Geographic Products Inc. - the Universal Address System for all location related services and products in Mongolia.

Toronto, Canada, February 16, 2009 --(PR.com)-- NAC Geographic Products Inc. announced that the Government of Mongolia has passed an important resolution to adopt the revolutionary technology of NAC Geographic Products Inc. - the Universal Address System for all location related services and products in Mongolia after a comprehensive research of all address systems in the world. This is another breakthrough for the Universal Address System to become the main stream address and locating system in the world.

Universal Addresses not only possess all the functionalities of traditional addresses, but more importantly are unified representations of all locations and areas in the world that can be used conveniently by both consumers and professionals.

A Universal Address is an eight or ten character Natural Area Code (NAC) which can represent both areas and locations anywhere in the world. A two character NAC can specify any area about 1000 km in length and width like a province, a four character NAC represents a 30 km long and wide area (like a city) approximately, a six character NAC is roughly equivalent to any square kilometer area on the earth, an eight character NAC can uniquely identify a 30 meter long and wide area (size of a house or building) in the world, and a ten character NAC can pinpoint any location in the world to the resolution of one meter. Therefore, Universal Addresses are highly compact and human-friendly codes that can be used as adrresses, postcodes, geographic coordinates, area codes, property identifiers, etc.

Marking Universal Addresses on house number plates, street signs and all other roadside objects will physically digitize the land because Universal Addresses are the coordinates of the Universal Map Grids. Thus, comparing the Universal Address of any destination and the one marked on the local roadside object can immediately get the distance and direction to the destination and will significantly help taxi, courier, delivery, especially ambulance, fire fighters and police find locations.

Printing Universal Map Grids on a map can help people directly pinpoint the location of any Universal Address on the map to avoid the time consuming procedure in looking up the street name on the street index and guessing the location of the street number along the street. Moreover, the location information obtained from different maps with the Universal Map Grids can be directly connected and exchanged no matter what projections and scales the maps have, while the location information obtained from a country map with longitude/latitude grid, a state map with UTM grid and a street map with a local grid are nearly impossible to be connected.

When Universal Addresses are used as global postcodes for automatic mail sorting, they can sort mail from the world level to the final mail boxes with better coverage and accuracy than any existing postcodes. Since Universal Addresses exist everywhere, mail with Universal Addresses can also be conveniently sorted and delivered to any temporary locations in the world. This is well suited to Mongolia with many yurts residing on temporary locations.

If the capability of handling Universal Addresses is implemented in GIS software, local search engines and navigation systems, Universally Addresses can be used to efficiently, reliably, uniquely and universally specify locations and areas, a sharp contrast to traditional addresses that are long, language dependent, full of variations, frequently duplicated, and available only to limited (less than 1%) locations in the world. For example, you can simply input "H5Q2 R48Q" instead of "Eiffel Tower, Paris, France" to get the map of Eiffel Tower in Paris.

If Universal Addresses are listed on all yellow pages, tourist guides and business directories, and included on all business cards, advertisements and websites, customers can easily find these businesses with their Universal Addresses on either printed maps with Universal Map Grids, Universal Address enhanced navigation systems or physically on the land with Universal Addresses marked on all its street signs.

If Universal Addresses have been used as landmarks, addresses, geographic coordinates, area codes, postcodes and property identifiers, and Universal Map Grids have been printed on all kinds of maps, all people, no matter professionals or consumers, tourists or local residents, can directly communicate all location information in the world without needs to do complicated data conversion between different systems and eliminate the huge time and cost currently wasted in the geographic data conversion.

"Wide use of the Universal Address System will dramatically improve the postal service, courier, taxi and delivery services, emergency services, online location based services, navigation and map products, property and public works management systems, transportation and tourism in Mongolia and make Mongolia a truely geo-technology advanced country in the world," said Dr. Xinhang Shen, president of NAC Geographic Products Inc. "As the world is further embracing the Universal Address System, numerous business opportunities will be created for GPS manufacturers, GIS developers, map publishers, mail sorting equipment and location based services providers. Its implementation in both GIS infrastructure and physical land will be the most valuable long term investment in the stimulus packages of all governments in the world."
