The NENA NG9-1-1 CLDXF standard supports the exchange of United States civic location address information about 9-1-1 calls, both within the US and internationally. The NENA NG9-1-1 CLDXF standard covers civic location addresses within the United States, including its outlying territories and possessions. The NENA NG9-1-1 CLDXF standard defines the detailed data elements needed for address data exchange.

The CLDXF document was developed to:

  • Provide a definitive set of core civic location data elements that support emergency call routing and dispatch.
  • Map a profile between Presence Information Data Format-Location Object (PIDF-LO) and those same NENA core civic location data elements.
  • Map those civic location data elements to the corresponding Federal Geographic Data Committee, United States Thoroughfare, Landmark, and Postal Address Data Standard, Document Number FGDC-STD-016-2011 set of data elements, which was sponsored by the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA) and the National Emergency Number Association (NENA).
  • Provide illustrative examples of address parsing.
