Today, the rapid development of urban areas has led to the explosion of data volumes in land use change. The present development of infrastructure and housing has caused many difficulties in urban management, especially information of street name and house number. Therefore, the management and provision of information of street name and house number in a scientific and effective way is an urgent demand for all agencies, organizations and individuals in our society. Geographic information system (GIS) is developing increasingly and continuously and applied in many fields; QGIS is a new open source code software with many features, considered as one of the most powerful tools in designing and analyzing spatial database. Applying this software to manage database of name street and housing number will be better in managing construction and infrastructure development in urban areas which are suitable with the strategy of establishing smart city and e-government in our city and nation. The results of this study showed that the present and oriental organization of address built successfully a database of streets name, houses number and used Python programming language in developing the tool to manage and look up the information with functions such as look up, update and map interaction of Binh Tho ward, Thu Duc district, Ho Chi Minh City. The test results indicate that this tool is very useful in managing and searching information on street name, house number related to information on land parcels’ information on cadastral base.
