About NAC Society
The International NAC Society, Inc. is an international not-for-profit organization incorporated in Canada by the supporters of
Natural Area Coding System to promote its non-commercial applications
for the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
Natural Area Code is a highly efficient and universal code for any location or any area in the world. It can be used as the Global
Postal Code for automatic mail sorting from world level to final household mail boxes, as the Universal Address for efficiently and language
independently specifying any destination in the world on GPS navigation systems to provide point-to-point/door-to-door navigation services
everywhere in the world, as the Universal Geographic Reference Code for accurately recording, referencing and reporting the location of
any event or discovery, as the Universal Area Code for retrieving a map and making a local search on a map application and local search
engine, as the location meta tag for indexing websites of location sensitive service providers on web search engines, as the Universal
Property Identifier for virtually retrieving the record of a property or physically finding the location of a property or a roadside object
(fire hydrant, manhole, electric wire pole, street light, parking meter, park bench, tree, etc). Natural Area Coding System is to unify
all the representations of locations and areas in the world for all people in the world to use all kinds of location related applications
no matter what languages they speak, where they live and what profession they have. Therefore, the adoption of Natural Area
Coding System will significantly improve the quality of the life of everybody in the world.
Through promoting and implementing the Universal Address System, we will give everybody in the world a unique home address with
which they can immediately enjoy various services directly delivered to their home, to solve the problems of more than half
population in the world without home addresses and access to postal/courier services, banking and insurance services, emergency
services, etc to their homes.
Our mission is to solve all the problems of addresses through the following activities:
