Entry for postcodes / fr


This is a discussion about the submission for postcodes / fr.

The Base Adresse Nationale (National Adress Base) is launched in April 2015. It’s a partnership between IGN (National Institute of Geographic and Forest Information), La Poste (national postal service), OpenStreetMap France, Etalab (Prime Minister’s Office for Public Data Openness and Open Government) and the Direction générale des Finances publiques (General Directorate of Public Finance).

It is available here: https://adresse.data.gouv.fr/

This base is one of the 9 datasets of the Public data service established by the article 14 of the loi pour une République numérique (law for a digital republic).

The license is Licence Ouverte / Open Licence (the license of the French government) which is obviously an open license.


No, as detailed here https://adresse.data.gouv.fr/download it is not published under Open Licence but rather under two different licences and contents:

  • raw official data from the government under a specific non open licence
  • enriched data from OpenStreetMap under ODbL
    At that time, the index specified only data proposed by governmental agencies was receivable for the index, hence the review.
