For compelling visuals, Code-Point with polygons lets you apply shading to individual postcodes on a map. This means you can analyse location data at the most granular level and bring your results vividly to life.
We give you every single postcode in Great Britain and Northern Ireland – including those for different floors of high-rise buildings.
For accuracy, we give every postcode a positional quality rating and map out the boundaries of only the postcodes we can locate most precisely.
The big picture
With over 1.6 million postcodes all mapped out, Code-Point with polygons brings geographic analysis location to life and helps you make better decisions, whatever your issue – crime prevention, public health, economic regeneration and much more.
Opportunities stack up
Using the 'vertical streets' data in this product, quickly identify densely populated areas. They're an ideal location for retail or fast food businesses that relies on high footfall.
Manage your risks better
Display postcode boundaries on a map, then add contours and your own claims data. This is a great way to identify low-lying postcodes, so you can quote for insurance at a price that reflects higher flood risks.
