Mongolia to adopt international address system PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 12 February 2009
Mongolia will adopt the Universal Address System, allowing all locations in Mongolia to become part of a comprehensive address system in the world. 

The Mongolian government will allow building numbers which appear as traditional addresses. However the new system will become part of a network of addresses throughout the world that can be used by both consumers and professionals to find all locations and areas throughout the world. 

A Universal Address is an eight or ten character Natural Area Code (NAC) which can represent both areas and locations anywhere in the world.  

A two character NAC can specify any area about 1000 km in length and width like a province, a four character NAC represents a 30 km long and wide area (like a city) approximately, a six character NAC is roughly equivalent to any square kilometer area on the earth, an eight character NAC can uniquely identify a 30 meter long and wide area (size of a house or building) in the world, and a ten character NAC can pinpoint any location in the world to the resolution of one meter.

Great! What about a street name and house number plan? Mail box system?
