FAQs: Better Places geocoding API.

What does address normalization mean?

Address normalization is the very first step in the address cleansing process. Unstructured raw data are “scrubbed”, removing any unwanted characters, and parsed into components. These components are then converted into a normalized format and tagged. From there, the address can be standardized according to any country database or geocoder standard. Normalized address components allow you to be much more flexible and less dependent on raw data than if you were to clean your addresses according to any one specific standard from the outset.
