In Korea, the address-point matching technique has been used to provide geocoding services. In fact, this technique brings the high positional accuracy. However, the quality of geocoding result can be limited, since it is significantly affected by data quality. Also, it cannot be used for the 3D address geocoding and the reverse geocoding. In order to alleviate issues, the paper has implemeted proposed geocoding methods, based on street-based addresses matching technique developed by US census bureau, for street-based addresses in Korea. Those proposed geocoding methods are illustrated in two ways; (1) street address-matching method, which of being used for not only 2D addresses representing a single building but also 3D addresses representing indoor space or underground building, and (2) reverse geocoding method, whichas converting a location point to a readable address. The result of street-based address geocoding shows 82.63% match rates, while the result of reverse geocoding shows 98.5% match rates within approximately 1.7(m) the average position error. According to the results, we could conclude that the proposed geocoding techniques enable to provide the LBS(Location Based Service). To develop the geocoding methods, the study has perfoermed by ignoring the parsing algorithms for address standardization as well as the several areas with unusual addresses, such as sub-urban areas or subordinate areas to the roads, etc. In the future, we are planning the improved geocoding methods for considering these cases.
