Has anyone found a reliable Street Database program? I’d like to find something free but I’m not having much luck. I cannot use OpenMaps by Mapquest, their data works off of Hamlets that dates back to the 1800s when different towns were called different names. Very annoying.
Hi Steve. Yes, the streets database is for address verification—to speed up order entry (with autofill) and help keep your customer data clean, especially if you use it for mailing. The data is from GDS, and you can find it in the store on our Customer Support site. If you’re looking to save a few bucks, the cities where your stores are located may have some data available, although it may not be in a form you can import easily. It looks like Pittsburgh has quite a bit of open data available. You would have to look through it to see whether you can pull out the specific streets data you need.
