All pets at the right address thanks to Belmap

Belgian owners, veterinarians or breeders officially register their faithful four-legged friends through CatID and DogID. To do this, these websites use the data on your electronic identity card (e-ID) along with an address database: a process that Zetes and GIM implemented accurately and efficiently with the Belmap API.

All cats residing in Belgium for more than six months must, by law, be registered through CatID. Each cat can be traced in the database by its microchip number.

The equivalent for dogs is DogID, a useful tool for:
• animal shelters where a missing quadruped is brought in;
• veterinarians who need to treat a pet and want to consult its records;
• veterinarians who want to consult or change the data of the animal and its owner, for example in the event of a move or death.

Wanted: the right address

Animal owners, veterinarians or breeders must log in to the online government platform using an electronic identity card. It is important here that every registration through an e-ID is linked to an existing and correct address.

Zetes and GIM use Belmap for this, the pre-eminent source for location-specific information on buildings and addresses in Belgium. Belmap guarantees the highest-quality addresses from a variety of sources and receives daily updates.

Belmap API: cleverly linked

The Belmap API easily links apps and websites to the Belmap database of address data. Thus, CatID and DogID use the most current addresses anytime, anywhere. In addition, the Belmap API provides an intuitive interface so that any animal lover or professional can easily find their address.
