Global Reference Data

The Global Reference Data is Loqate’s proprietary master database which contains the most comprehensive premise level location reference data in the world, covering 250 countries and territories.

Loqate curates its reference data by securing and combining multiple data sources for each country and territory, beyond official postal authorities, with geospatial and utility companies’ datasets into a consistent and reliable single view of a location.

Location biasing

Activating location biasing, the user's input becomes a vital factor in the search process. We leverage the information provided by the user's location to prioritize addresses in proximity to their current position. This ensures that the most relevant results are displayed first, offering a seamless and tailored search experience.



Geofencing is a valuable capability offered by Loqate that allows customers to define a specific geographic area for their search requests. By creating polygons using latitude and longitude coordinates, customers can include or exclude certain regions from their search results. This functionality is particularly beneficial for customers with specific location requirements, such as differentiating between mainland and overseas territories for more accurate results.



By setting specific geographic limitations, businesses can control the regions they deliver to and effectively communicate any restrictions or additional charges to consumers in those areas. With Results Filtering, customers have the flexibility to include or exclude parameters such as postcode/zip code, city or town, county or state, country, and address type (commercial or residential). This level of control allows businesses to streamline their operations and deliver a more tailored and efficient service to their target regions.


Fuzzy Matching

By employing natural language processing, Fuzzy Matching enhances user input accuracy. It identifies anchor words, like cities, and automatically corrects other elements, such as spelling mistakes, in a user's input. This intelligent feature ensures a seamless and error-free experience, enabling users to effortlessly communicate their intended information.


Localized searching

With Localized Searching, users can effortlessly search for addresses in any global character set and language. This feature automatically supports input in various character sets and languages, ensuring a seamless search experience for users worldwide.
