When the major 'B' is replaced by the minor 'b', there are already 56 possibilities. In addition, errors in writing can explode the number of possibilities. For the computer, each possibility represents another street. Finally, it will become a manual job to clean up the databases in order to correct everything that users have introduced since we arrive at a single official name.
This example clearly shows the benefit of a single central file that contains all the official names of the streets. But not only the names of the streets, but also the official addresses on the territory of the RDC!
It is therefore necessary to create, before any other activity, a Central File of Reference Addresses, FAR in acronyms, which becomes the authentic source of the geographical data for the addresses located in the territory of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
