Community Addresses is a configuration of ArcGIS that helps communities (states, counties, emergency operations centers, and so on) aggregate address information from authoritative sources and use this information to facilitate emergency response, permitting, administrative services and other related workflows.

Typically, address data is managed by local governments and used extensively to manage local government operations. Aggregating this data in to larger geographies (county, region, watershed, or state) helps organizations address common needs or issues that affect residents in many local governments and improve emergency response, permitting, and administrative services at a more regional level.


Community Addresses requires specific technical experience and software. Minimum system requirements for the ArcGIS Platform can be found on the Support website.

Community Addresses is supported on ArcGIS 10.2 and 10.3.
