Decommission of OS Address Infrastructure

Posted: 15 February 2016

Since the formation of GeoPlace in 2010, we have been continually working to evolve and improve. We are proud of the work we do and the way that we do it and last week we gained further accreditation of this.

Since the formation of GeoPlace in 2010, we have been continually working to evolve and improve. We are proud of the work we do and the way that we do it and last week we gained further accreditation of this.

Up until recently, Ordnance Survey actively captured and maintained its own address data content store used to create products such as ADDRESS-POINT and Code-Point. Last week, Ordnance Survey confirmed to us that they have ceased the wholesale capture and maintenance processes they previously carried out, with the primary content now fulfilled from NAG Hub.

Ordnance Survey continue to work collaboratively with GeoPlace and Local Authorities to ensure the ongoing accuracy of the NAG Hub, however this is now on a more targeted basis. This is a significant step for all of us, local authorities included.

Sally Cooper Product Creation & Fulfilment Manager at Ordnance Survey said "This is a really big milestone for Ordnance Survey in our collaborative journey with GeoPlace and local authorities. Working together is key to ensuring the NAG hub and AddressBase products are of the highest quality and we continue to be fully committed to this collaboration."
