AddressBase® Plus

Along with Royal Mail PAF data, AddressBase® Plus gives you up-to-date local authority addresses, multi-occupancy addresses and OS MasterMap TOID references.

Easy-to-use, AddressBase Plus is structured in a flat file model - containing current properties and addresses sourced from local authorities, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail matched to the UPRN. As well as 28 million defined properties, Ordnance Survey have included more than seven million local authority addresses, such as depots and church halls, places of worship and community centres.

Points of Interest

Points of Interest is the most comprehensive, location-based directory of all public and privately-owned businesses, education and leisure services in Britain. Points of Interest is a dataset of over 4 million geographic and commercial features across Great Britain - all highlighting location and function information, and with a postal address for all postally addressable Points. Each record also contains a telephone number, web address and brand, where appropriate.

Points of Interest has a highly developed three-level classification system to help you identify the features you are interested in. And this might be anything from accommodation (for a business traveller or tourist) through landscape features (for planning uses or the emergency services) to transport links (from rail and air to bus and tram users).

Each Points of Interest feature is provided with a national grid coordinate so it can be visualised as a point on a digital mapping system. When Points of Interest is combined with mapping, it becomes a powerful component in a modern, detailed location-based application.

The Points of Interest dataset contains over 600 different types of feature structured within a three tiered classification system that provides a flexible means of identifying and ordering just the data that you are interested in.
The dataset is provided in a common 'text' file format which is easy to store in spreadsheets, databases and GIS.
The product is regularly updated with new information and these updates are provided to you under the terms of your license.
