Everything Happens Somewhere - using local knowledge for national benefit

Posted: 04 April 2013

Case studies from the 2012 GeoPlace Exemplar Awards have now been published.

The case studies celebrate the work of Award winning Custodians across the country and demonstrate how Authority Address Custodians and Authority Street Custodians are enabling local authorities to create efficiency savings and support service delivery.

The Custodians are the people responsible for creating and maintaining essential national resources in the form of the National Street Gazetteer and the National Address Gazetteer. The National Address Gazetteer is a critical part of the AddressBase® range of products which are now widely available, and being used by the public sector through the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA) as well as by the private sector.

The case studies featured in this book demonstrate the importance of address and street information to local government â with much of the best practice transferable to other organisations across the public sector. The use of the Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) and the Unique Street Reference Number (USRN), which are included from day one in the lifecycle of an address or street, are the enablers behind many of these projects.
