Enriching postal addresses with Elastic stack

Thursday 24 September 2020


Most of the time postal addresses from our customers or users are not very well formatted or defined in our information systems. And it can become a nightmare if you are a call center employee for example and want to find a customer by its address. Imagine as well how a sales service could easily put on a map where are located the customers and where they can open a new shop... Let's take a simple example: { "name": "Joe Smith", "address": { "number": "23", "street_name": "r verdiere", "city": "rochelle", "country": "France" } } Or the opposite. I do have the coordinates but I can't tell what is the postal address corresponding to it: { "name": "Joe Smith", "location": { "lat": 46.15735, "lon": -1.1551 } } In this live coding session, I will show you how to solve all those questions using the Elastic stack with a lot of focus on Logstash and Elasticsearch.
