How can I use GeoDirectory?

GeoDirectory helps businesses to operate more effectively. Our vast store of information is used to simplify the management of customer contact information and to identify potential new customers. GeoDirectory allows customers to provide internet location-based services or improve the efficiency and accuracy of delivery route design.

GeoDirectory is a powerful business tool that, alongside other data such as the national census or a company’s own customer profiles, can help identify the best sites for business location or pinpoint the most effective advertising sites or reveal geographical trends and patterns that can be visualised when displayed on a map. 

You will be amazed at what GeoDirectory can deliver. GeoDirectory is so powerful it can even identify target markets by income group, age profile, home ownership and other criteria (used in conjunction with Tailte Éireann data). Fnd out more here.

Does GeoDirectory supply Eircodes?

Yes, we are an official reseller of Eircodes. If you are currently using our products you can request for Eircodes to be included in your data by contacting us on 01 705 7005 or contact us here.

How easy is it to manage the GeoDirectory dataset?

GeoDirectory is aimed at the medium to larger sized organisation with a need for fast, accurate information in an easy to use format. GeoDirectory comes in four separate formats to download:

  • CSV (Excel compatible)
  • Access
  • Oracle Dump
  • XML

How is GeoDirectory updated?

Every quarter An Post’s delivery staff is debriefed for ‘on the ground intelligence’. This is fed into a database by a dedicated team of support staff who are regular communication with local authority planning departments. This information is then geocoded by Tailte Éireann. We add in feedback from existing customers and then these updates are available to our existing clients free of charge.

No address database can ever remain static so every year GeoDirectory makes up to 600,000 changes (close a third of the database) as new buildings are constructed, addresses are amended or reclassified, as companies relocate and as new companies are established while others cease trading.
