As well as the latitude/longitude for each.

1 Answer 1


The French government has just launched a national open database that aims to contain all currently valid addresses: http://adresse.data.gouv.fr
It is a collaboration between the government, the French National Geographic Institute, the postal service, and OpenStreetMap.

800 megabytes, one CSV file per French departement, WIN1252 encoding. The data can be downloaded for free under the ODbL license without registration at http://openstreetmap.fr/ban
