From the 1970s to July 2020

Blog posted by: Steve Brandwood, Executive Director of Engagement, GeoPlace, 06 July 2020.

With the recent announcement of the Geospatial Commission’s Strategy, a new Public Sector Geospatial Agreement in place, Open UPRN and USRN products now available, a mandate on Central Government and NHS bodies to adopt UPRNs and USRNs and the introduction of AddressBase Core, a new lower price point AddressBase product released into the market, it feels like this moment is a significant step-change in the delivery of a national geospatial framework.

Our vision at GeoPlace is a world in which everyone benefits from the power of location data and our mission in this is to excel in delivering street and addressing data that inspires innovation and transforms people’s lives. This is a long-held ambition for us that can be tracked back over 50 years.

There have been several other significant moments in this story that we thought would be worth noting as we celebrate our most recent achievements. Our history is a shared history and our achievements are shared with our local authority Custodian colleagues, and the various organisations that share our vision and supported our mission over the years.
