Good quality address and street data underpin many aspects of local government business; from large transformation projects with the gazetteers at the heart, saving the authorities millions of pounds; to smaller initiatives which have found clever ways to join up other information, or to use the gazetteers in unusual ways.

Good data is critical in all of this.  Without accurate, current and well maintained data many of these challenges simply won't be solved.

The Awards highlight Custodians' roles within their authorities and enable their work to be more widely promoted to all parts of the authority.  They allow the many services which currently use address and street data to see that the high standard of the data is externally recognised.  They also highlight to any potential users of the datasets that they too can use consistent and up to date address or street data in their projects.
