Change Notification - Predictive and Addresses APIs
Scheduled for Sep 8, 00:00 - 00:01 AEST
Scheduled
Geoscape is making changes to the G-NAF and Administrative Boundaries products and as a result, these changes will impact our Predictive and Address API services.

Locality identifiers (Affects Predictive API and Addresses API)
  • The current Locality identifiers (`gnaf_locality_pid`, `gnaf_street_locality_pid`, `localityId`, `streetLocalityId`) will change from their current format (eg. NSW234, VIC567) to new identifiers. The new identifiers will be prefixed with "loc" and be 15 chars in length. (eg. loc2e585050d240, loc3adebdfd139a)
  • We can provide you with a mapping table that links the old and new identifiers. Please email Geoscape Support if you need this.

    LGA identifiers (Affects Addresses API)
  • The current LGA identifiers (localGovernmentArea.lgaPid) will change from their current format (eg. NSW345, VIC456) to new identifiers. The new identifiers will be prefixed with "lga" and be 15 chars in length. (eg. lga8d5aff85539a, lga5404a569c6ec).
  • We can provide you with a mapping table that links the old and new identifiers. Please email Geoscape Support if you need this.

    New ABS ASGS 2021 (Affects Addresses API)
  • The new Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) boundaries for Census year 2021 will be added to the `asgsMain` response attribute.
  • The 2011 and 2016 boundary values will stay and won't be removed.


    These changes will take place from Wednesday 8 September 2021.
    There will be no outage associated with this activity.

    If you have any questions or issues with the change please advise Geoscape Support (support@geoscape.com.au) as soon as possible.
