Provides a field for international postal addresses. Uses a subset of the top-level address elements defined in the xNAL standard (see below).

The field configuration lets you determine which elements of an address should be present in the data entry form and which ones should be rendered for display.


  • Standardized storage of international postal addresses based on the xNAL
    standard (the same format used by Google Maps for geocoding).
  • Per-country edit form and formatting of addresses.
  • Proper formatting of address forms and output on a country by country basis.
  • Feeds integration for address importing.
  • Rich snippets / semantic markup via the module.

This module does not store or manipulate geographic coordinates or integrate with GIS systems, but it works well in conjunction with modules that do, like Geocoder.


As mentioned, this module uses the xNAL (Extensible Name and Address Language) vocabulary for describing address information. The terms used to designate various parts of an address may not be immediately recognizable, so this quick glossary equates the address parts in xNAL to their equivalent U.S. address terms (with some being self-evident):

country => Country (always required, 2 character ISO code)
name_line => Full name (default name entry)
first_name => First name
last_name => Last name
organisation_name => Company
administrative_area => State / Province / Region (ISO code when available)
sub_administrative_area => County / District (unused)
locality => City / Town
dependent_locality => Dependent locality (unused)
postal_code => Postal code / ZIP Code
thoroughfare => Street address
premise => Apartment, Suite, Box number, etc.
sub_premise => Sub premise (unused)

  • Add an Address Field to any entity (Node, User, or Term).

  • Configure the Address Field to show or hide various parts of the address.
