Recently, address system in Korea is changing from parcel based system to street based address system. Parcel based system has been no longer providing of location information due to rapid industrialization, increase of population or sprawl of city. Therefore new address system based on street network introduced. The objectives of this study are improved position accuracy. This study reviews the fundamental geocoding process, concept, and address system in Korea. The main results of this study were summed up as followings; Firstly, the geocoding was possible as new address system based street network. Secondly, positional errors in geocoding quality were reduced by modifying street segments. This research result can be widely used for construction of GIS database for address-based data.
