Today, spatial information systems are used in many fields for various purposes in light of the technological improvements. Main purpose of these systems is to manage data in an effective way in order to reach an optimum decision. In this respect, Address-based Information Systems (AIS) is a vital for local governments to provide some valuable services to individuals. Because these systems can set up a very good relationship among the basic geospatial data layers for a city-work and link these geospatial data with corresponded objects directly. Thus, AIS minimize the time and financial losses for local governments and institutions using a fixed address data. Linkages among digital maps and related address inventories databases are the main components of AIS. Identification of all addresses and preliminary works such as developing a numerating system should be introduced first. Using some map layers such as buildings, roads, and land parcels and supply of linked address data to these layers is the most precisely task within AIS. Address-based information systems are important for spatial query and analyze. Because these systems are map-based, and they can be used effectively in many field such as urgent emergency analyze, address query, collection of the real estate tax, risk analyze etc. In this paper, to design and implementation of an AIS will be examined.
