What you can expect from the course

A step by step introduction to the creation and maintenance of street data according to best practice guidelines and data entry rules. In particular, the course will cover

The course will be delivered by one of our expert team who collectively have over 50 years' experience in creating and maintaining address and street data.

The courses are delivered directly by GeoPlace members of staff, we don't outsource our training. This means you will be trained by experts who have been involved in writing the specifications for the data as well as bringing years of practical experience of data management.

What you will get out of it

100% of delegates say they would recommend this course to a colleague.

The course is designed to explain simply and concisely the complexities around creating and maintaining your data. Understanding how your data is used not just within your authority but by organisations nationally.

The course is intense and we guarantee you will be tired, but fired-up by the end of the day!

You really will get as much out of the day as you put in. We suggest you think a little before you attend what you want to discuss or find out more about.

With a maximum number of 8 attendees, the course is planned to enable attendees to ask questions throughout the day.

You will come away with a sound basic understanding of how to represent real world objects in the appropriate data format. You will have a good awareness of the best practice associated with the creation and use of the data and a sound understanding of how to submit your data to the hub.

The introductory courses are designed mainly for Custodians or Deputy Custodians who have been in the role for less than a year. Please note, this is not a street naming and numbering course.

Some Custodians who have been in the role longer or who feel they would like to brush up on their skills may also benefit from the course.
