AddressBase to replace current address gazetteers

  • June 21st, 2012  

    A seminar on the 20th June 2012 presented the new industry format address gazetteer ‘AddressBase’. This will combine the various existing gazetteers the NLPG, Royal Mail PAF, OS Address Point and OS Address Layer 2 into one uniform product. This will have the advantage of all government and commercial agencies using the same product for consistency. The UPRN from the NLPG will be the unique identifier, offering huge opportunity for further data linkage and insight across these agencies. GeoIntel and nkm have been using the UPRN in this way for many years, and welcome this new initiative.
