Address Points Florida


The Address Points Florida data represents locations of structures with addresses.

The geographic location of address points are created using one of two methods. Method one is where a point is manually placed on top of a structure. This is also called a "rooftop" address point. Method two is where the address point is automatically generated based on a parcel polygon centroid.

Address points provided by county governments are usually "rooftop" address points. MapWise generated parcel centroid address points for all counties where "rooftop" address points were not available.

Address points derived from parcel centroids may not accurately or completely represent addresses in the real world. For example, a retail plaza represented by one parcel polygon may contain 20 businesses in the plaza, each with its own unique street address. A parcel centroid is only going to represent one of those addresses. In the case of larger rural parcels, the parcel centroid may be located several hundred feet or more from the actual structure location.
