The usage of georeferencing as a search tool has suffered a massification after the diffusion of technologies developed by Google and Microsoft. In this context, problems related to the location of properties situated on highways are becoming quite usual in Brazil, because properties registration in highway is permitted in the country and this invalidates the dynamics of the georeferencing process. Therefore, a growing number of geotechnology users which desire to localize properties on highways, find inaccurate or amiss geographical information. This research focus is to present an enumeration method for highway properties and, consequently, the possibility of a precise georeferencing. The presented method contributes to turning possible the precision of this georeferencing process and it will also be relevant for geotechnology diffusion considering its integration to geographic information systems which include geocoding tools.
