Abstract

International Addressing Systems (IAS) is a mapping technology used to create uniform addressing systems in countries, towns, and cities where individuals are without addesses or other mailing systems. The unique aspect of IAS is that it requires nothing more than latitudinal and longitudinal coordinates. With this sytstem, a mercant in an undeveloped or rurlal country, who creates a marketable product, will now be able to sell his product to individuals outside of his community. That same merchant will also be able to receive materials he needs to develop his prouct, without traveling for hours or even days to acquire needed materials. IAS will also provide order, access, and opportunity in countries and towns that are without infrastrucre, stable governments, and other means needed to succeed.

Description

DESCRIPTION

Michael A. Olsen has been in the surveying and development industry for over 20 years. Mr. Olsen has worked with numerous forms of technology that improved the accuracy of surveying. Recently, Mr. Olsen was working with surveying technology, which could only be used from a helicopter or plane, to better organize and map out neighborhoods and cities. In the process of using said technology, Mr. Olsen began to think of ways in which this surveying technology could benefit other industries. Mr. Olsen's ideas evolved until he came up with International Addressing Systems.

Mr. Olsen first used the longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates to begin mapping larger areas. Slowly, his system evolved until he created a system that could place a zip code and address to any location in the world.

Now, this system can designate a zip code and address to any 2.6822 meters by 2.6822 square meter of land. This invention creates an addressing system that can be used by local, national, and world governments and private organizations, to increase commerce and provide necessities to individuals in more rural and underdeveloped places in the world. For example, a merchant in Liberia who has never been able to sell his product to anyone but those in his own town, will now have the ability to sell his product to those in his town, country, and even the world. The merchant will be able to do this, because he will have an address from where he can send things, and from where he can receive things.

International Addressing Systems applies a formula created from values extrapolated from longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates, used to assign a zip code and address to any dwelling or location.

The circumference of the earth is approximately 40,233.6 kilometers (25,000 miles) by 360 degrees. The earth is divided into small sections by using longitudes and latitudes.

Longitudes and latitudes are characterized by degrees. The distance between two degrees of longitude is just over 111 kilometers (69 miles). The distance between two degrees of latitude is just over 111 kilometers (69 miles). To pinpoint exact locations, each degree is divided into minutes, sixty (60) to be exact. Minutes are further divided into tenths of minutes, hundredths of minutes, seconds, tenths of seconds, and hundredths of seconds. The breakdown of degrees into minutes and seconds allows for precise location.

The greater the distance between a given location and the equator, the shorter the distance between the lines of longitude. For example, at 45 degrees north or south of the equator, one degree of longitude is about 78 kilometers (49 miles).

IAS uses the degrees of longitude and latitude, and the further breakdown of degrees of longitude and latitude, to develop their addressing system. First, IAS establishes a zip code, and second, IAS establishes an actual street address.

First, IAS establishes a zip code. The zip code is represented by the degree and minutes of longitude and latitude for a designated location. The zip code has six (6) character spots and is written XXX- YYY. The X's represent latitude, and the Y's represent longitude. The first section of the zip code is referred to as "XXX." The first two values, "XX", are the number of degrees of latitude. If the degree of latitude is less than ten (10), the first "X" will be the number zero (0). The third value, or third "X" is the tens place of the minutes of the latitude. These numbers will range from 1 to 6, as there are sixty (60) minutes in each degree of latitude. The second section of the zip code is referred to as "YYY". The first two values, "YY", are the number of degrees of longitude. If the degree of longitude is less than ten (10), the first "Y" will be the number zero (0). The third value, or third "Y", is the tens place of the minutes of the longitude. The final "Y" will range from 1 to 6, as there are sixty minutes in each degree of longitude.

Each region of Latitude and Longitude is approximately 69 miles by 69 miles, or 4761 square miles. Each Zip Code region is 18.50746 kilometers by 18.50746 kilometers (11.5 miles by 11.5 miles), or 342.526076 square kilometers (132.25 square miles).

After a zip code has been designated, the second step is to assign each dwelling within the zip code a specific address. IAS has the capability of identifying a dwelling or plot of land as small as 2.6822 meters by 2.6822 meters (8.8 feet by 8.8 feet). If more than one dwelling unit occupies a 2.6822 meters by 2.6822 meters dwelling space, these units will be assigned with a unit value A, B, or C etc. Every address consists of two, four digit, sequence of numbers which are represented by "abed" and "efgh" respectively.

The first set of four digits, "abed", represents the latitude of the location, or the north or south of the location, depending on whether the dwelling is located north or south of the equator. The "a" is the one's place of the minutes in a degree of latitude, or in other words, a minute of a degree of latitude. There are 1.8507 kilometers (1.15 miles) between every minute of latitude. The values of "a", or of a minute of latitude, range from 0-9. The "b" is the tenth's place of the seconds of the minutes in a degree of latitude. There is approximately 160.93 meters (528 feet) between every ten seconds of latitude. The values of "b" range from 1-6. The "c" is the one's place for the seconds of the minutes in a degree of latitude, or in other words a second of a degree of latitude. There are 26.822 meters (88 feet) between every second of latitude. The values of "c", or a second of latitude, range from 0-9. The "d" is a tenths place of a second in a degree of latitude. There are 2.6822 meters (8.8 feet) between every tenths of a second of a degree of latitude. The values of "d", or of a tenth of a second of latitude, range from 0-9. The second set of four digits, "efgh", represents the latitude of the location, or the east or west of the location, depending on whether the dwelling is located east or west of the Prime Meridian. The "e" is the one's place of the minutes in a degree of longitude, or in other words, a minute of a degree of longitude. There are 1.8507 kilometers (1.15 miles) between every minute of longitude. The values of "e", or of a minute of longitude, range from 0-9. The "f ', is the tenth's place of the seconds of the minutes in a degree of longitude. There are approximately 160.93 meters (528 feet) between every ten seconds of longitude. The values off range from 1-6. The "g" is the one's place for the seconds of the minutes in a degree of longitude, or in other words a second of a degree of longitude. There are 26.822 meters (88 feet) between every second of longitude. The values of "g", or a second of longitude, range from 0-9. The "h" is a tenths place of a second in a degree of longitude. There are 2.6822 meters (8.8 feet) between every tenths of a second of a degree of longitude. The values of "h", or of a tenth of a second of latitude, range from 0-9.

In addition to the numbers assigned to each dwelling, a roadway name may also be included if that dwelling is located on a roadway. If the dwelling is not located on a roadway, it will only include the zip code and address. Dwellings located on the north or west side of a roadway will end in even numbers. Addresses that are located on the south or east side of a roadway will end in an odd number. For those addresses not located on a roadway, interpolation is used to the closest roadway for assigning the address, or if unable to determine, the odd and even ending value will not be applied.

When an address is designated, the two step IAS process has been completed.
