Geographic Online Address Translator

Welcome to the Geographic Online Address Translator (GOAT)!

GOAT allows you to enter a New York City geographic location, such as an address, intersection, street segment, street stretch, block and lot or BIN, and returns back related geographic information, such as cross streets, side of street, tax block and lot (AKA Parcel –ID), five-digit ZIP code, census tract and block, police precinct, community district and city council district.

Information on the functions can be found in the GOAT User Guide. Click on the output field label for its definition in the Glossary.

GOAT Glossary

This is the Glossary Page for GOAT – Geographic Online Address Translator. It contains definitions for the fields displayed for the various function calls available in GOAT. A list of expected field values and their meaning accompanies the definitions.

Additional Valid B7SC/Street Name:

Identifies additional local group of street names at the given location.

Address Point ID:

The Address Point ID is a unique nine digit identifier for each address point. Address Points are items in a CSCL feature class that represent point locations (approximately five feet inside a building (identified by BIN)) along the corresponding street frontage. Initially these were based on DCP’s Property Address Directory (PAD). Please note that whereas addresses in PAD reflect an administrative address range for a building, the Address Points usually only reflect the posted address. For example, PAD shows 14 – 32 Reade Street as the address for DCP’s former headquarters. The Address Point only shows 22 – 22 Reade Street (the posted address).

Address Range List:

An input address number is often part of a larger address range that is valid for a tax lot. A location may also have additional address ranges on street names that differ from the input, particularly when the input address is located on a corner lot or a through lot. The address range list includes the Address Type, Low and High Address Numbers, Street Name, BIN and TPAD BIN Status.

Address Type:

Various geographic identifiers related to the property functions in Geosupport (1B, BL, BN).

Auxiliary Segment ID List:

List of Segment ID's associated with a generated record.

B5SC, B7SC, B10SC (Street Codes):

Numeric street codes are assigned to represent the city’s street names and other geographic feature names. A borough code combined with a 5-digit street code (B5SC) corresponds to the primary name for a given piece of geography and encodes the alias relationships between street names. A borough code combined with a 7-digit street code (B7SC) corresponds to the preferred name for a specific location on a street whereas a 10-digit street code (B10SC) corresponds to a specific spelling of a specific street name in the given borough.

BBL (Borough, Block, Lot):

Identifies a parcel of real property in New York City, called a tax lot. The BBL contains a 1 byte Borough Code, a 5-byte Tax Block, and a 4-byte tax lot. The tax block and tax lot are both right justified, zero filled.
In a condominium, each condominium unit is a separate tax lot and has its own BBL. GOAT will return both the low and high BBL associated with the condo. Users should also note than if a condo lot is entered as input into a Block & Lot (Function BL), the tax lot returned in GOAT is a Billing BBL, generally associated with the management company for the condo instead of an individual owner.

BIN:

Building Identification Number (BIN) is a seven-digit numerical identifier unique to each building in the City of New York. The first digit is the Borough Code. If the borough code is followed by all zeroes (commonly referred to as a ‘million BIN’, this indicates that a BIN has not been assigned, either because the address associated with the building has not yet been built, an address is assigned as a potential valid range where there is no building (vacant lot or vacant street frontage), or it is associated with a constituent entity of a Complex NAP but does not indicate a building or structure that would have a BIN assignment (such as the Children’s Zoo Spider Web within Central Park).

In the case of Function 3 (Street Segment), the compass direction may be set to indicate the side of the street to be processed. The compass direction can also be indicated on Function 3S (Street Stretch) for one or both of the cross streets if they intersect at two distinct locations.

Curve Flag:

This flag indicates whether the given geographic feature segment is in reality curved. If so, the curve may be an arc of a circle or an irregular curve. When the segment specified by the input data is an arc of a circle, Functions 1 and 1E return Spatial Coordinates that are positioned relative to this arc rather than to the segment’s chord (the imaginary straight line joining the curved feature’s endpoints). When the segment specified by the input data is an irregular curve, Functions 1 and 1E return blanks in the Spatial Coordinate fields (q.v.), and issue a warning with Reason Code value ‘P’. In the case of Functions 3 and 3C, if the input data define a street stretch encompassing more than one segment (because of a T-intersection or bend), the Curve Flag is set ‘on’ (non-blank) if at least one of the constituent segments of the stretch is curved. See also discussion of Segment Length.

Value  
Blank None: segment is not curved
I Segment is an irregular curve, i.e., it is curved but it is not an arc of a circle

The Street or non-street feature name for a given location. GOAT normalizes street names so that users have considerable leeway in data entry. For example, GOAT allows many commonly used abbreviations for street endings and ‘normalizes’ the name to the one stored in the software. Users have a choice of two formats for normalizing street names, called the compact and sort formats. The sort format includes spacing to allow the proper sorting of numerical street names for reporting purposes, and compact removes the spaces. A more complete explanation regarding street names and their associated street codes is beyond the scope of this document. For more information, please refer to Chapters III and IV of the PDF DocumentUser Programming Guide .

The X, Y location returned in the geographic information section of an Address (Function 1B) call are imprecise and based on an algorithm that approximates the location based on the address range. In the property level information of an address call, the X, Y coordinate is an internal centroid derived from the tax lot. This same property level X, Y is returned in a Block & Lot (Function BL) and BIN (Function BN) call. The X, Y returned in an Intersection (Function 2) call corresponds to the node at that location.

GOAT also returns X, Y coordinates for the 'From Node' or end of the street segment and for the 'To Node' or end of the street segment.
