Linking People to Places

The theme of the 2018 conference and Exemplar Awards was ‘Linking People to Places.

Linking data to places adds value and gives better insight into an area and its citizens and allocates the provision of more targeted services. Councils across Great Britain rely on information from hundreds of different sources. Adding the UPRN or USRN to datasets such as social care, school admissions, council tax collection, waste management, electoral registration or planning applications can help make deeper sense of data once it's linked together.

The GeoPlace publication ‘Linking People to Places with Unique Identifiers' provides examples of how the UPRN and USRN are being used to deliver public services.
