Calgary addresses are defined by a city quadrant system. Centre Street separates the east from the west, and the Bow River in the downtown area roughly divides north and south. Addresses in each quadrant are identified with the appropriate NE, NW, SE, SW designations. There are four possible locations, so knowing the quadrant is important. For instance, the corner of 9 Ave and 9 St occurs twice on Map 2: once in the SE and once in the SW.
