Addresses: moving in right direction with GeoPlace
Update July 2011; GeoPlace is now up and running .
Although this move does not free up the data, it removes some obstacles on
the way to achieving that, as well as being worth while for society in it’s
own right with data of Ordnance Survey’s Address Layer 2 coming together with
the local government’s National Land and Property Gazetteer .
Do I feel a ‘Free the UPRN’ effort in mould of the ‘Free the Postcode’ effort taking shape
as Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) become more used?
