Due to the large number of non-geographic codes linked to business customers and po box numbers in the Channel Islands we have decided to provide centroid based coordinates for them that resolve to the centre of the main parish or town of each island. These will be marked with a positional quality indicator of 35. Residential research has now been completed and 97% of all residential codes will resolve to the streets in which they have been allocated. Customers who have bought these datasets from us are strongly encouraged to login to their account and download these updated datasets from us.
Due to frequent requests we have now updated our dataset of GB Towns, Cities and Villages to include the Postcode Area for each individual entry. Customers who have bought this dataset can now download this update.
