House numbering In most English-speaking countries, the usual method of house numbering is an alternating numbering scheme progressing in each direction along a street, with odd numbers on one side often west or south or the left-hand side leading away from a main road and even numbers on the other side, although there is significant variation on this basic pattern.
Many older towns and cities in the UK have "up and down" numbering where the numbers progress sequentially along one side of the road, and then sequentially back down the other side.
Cities in North Americaparticularly those planned on a grid planoften incorporate block numbers, quadrants explained belowand cardinal directions into their street numbers, so that in many such cities, addresses roughly follow a Cartesian coordinate system.

Quadrants[ edit ] In cities with Cartesian-coordinate-based addressing systems, the streets that form the north-south and east-west dividing lines constitute the x and y axes of a Cartesian coordinate plane and thus divide the city into quadrants.
The quadrants are typically identified in the street names, although the manner of doing so varies from city to city. For example, in one city, all streets in the northeast quadrant may have "NE" prefixed or suffixed to their street names, while in another, the intersection of North Calvert Street and East 27th Street can be only in the northeast quadrant.
Street-naming conventions[ edit ] Street names may follow a variety of themes. In Salt Lake Cityand many other Utah cities, streets are in a large grid and are numbered in increments of based on their location relative to the center of the city in blocks.
A similar system is in use in Detroit with the Mile Road System. In some housing developments in North America and elsewhere, street names may all follow the same theme for example, bird speciesor start with the same letter. Streets in Continental Europethe Middle Eastand Latin America are often named after famous people or significant dates.
