Geoplace Stakeholder Channel Launch announcement
We are delighted to be featuring news and insights from GeoPlace, the latest stakeholder channel now available from WiredGov.
GeoPlace is a world class expert in address and street information management.
Addresses are invaluable to our economy and our public services. Addresses help make sure that emergency services get to our door as quickly as possible; addresses help confirm our identity, they help to access products and services.
For digital services, too, to verify identity, register to vote, get a driving licence, buy broadband, the uses of addresses are countless, from welfare provision, social care, council tax charging, and fraud prevention. The address is the point of reference that anchors people throughout these services and across geographical boundaries.
Jointly owned by Ordnance Survey and the Local Government Association, GeoPlace was formed in 2010 as a result of a government call for a standard index of addresses and we now maintain a national infrastructure that provides definitive address and street data from source to hundreds of users across the public and private sectors through Ordnance Survey as AddressBase and the OS MasterMap Highways Network.
As well as building and managing these national datasets, GeoPlace has audited, cleaned, analysed and matched hundreds of millions of records ranging from small local datasets to nationwide taxation, census, customer records, licensing, emergency services’ command and control systems, utility asset management, energy performance, health and social demographics.
Through our sponsorship of the Joint Authorities Group (JAG(UK)), GeoPlace enables the co-ordination of organisations responsible for the roads and streets of the United Kingdom, including government, the Highway Authorities and Utilities Committees, National Traffic Managers Forum and other related bodies for asset or utility network management and other events taking place on the highway.
