The ContactAddress interface of the Contact Picker API represents a physical address. Instances of this interface are retrieved from the address property of the objects returned by ContactsManager.getProperties().

It may be useful to refer to the Universal Postal Union website's Addressing S42 standard materials, which provide information about international standards for postal addresses.
