Scottish addresses added to AddressBase Products

18 February 2013

Ordnance Survey is pleased to announce the inclusion of over 3 million Scottish addresses in the AddressBase suite of products.

AddressBase products have been produced through the GeoPlace joint partnership with the Local Government Association and provide the definitive source of addresses across the whole of Great Britain. The products are available through

Ordnance Survey. Available to all commercial customers and subscribers to the Public Sector Mapping Agreement and the One Scotland Mapping Agreement, the Scottish addresses will be available via the online ordering portals from 25 May 2012.

The original release of AddressBase products in September 2011 included addressing for England and Wales only. This new addition now completes the coverage for Great Britain.

Richard Mason, Managing Director at GeoPlace said:

‘This is a major achievement from all parties involved. The Improvement Service Ltd working on behalf of Scottish Government, the 32 Scottish local authorities, Forth Valley GIS, as Scottish Gazetteer Custodian and GeoPlace have worked together to ensure this release of the Scottish address information contains the most accurate data available and we will continue to work together to develop the content in future releases.’

John Kimmance, Head of Sales at Ordnance Survey added:

‘We are delighted to be able to deliver national coverage of addresses in Great Britain. The inclusion of Scottish addresses means that organisations working across Great Britain, such as insurance companies, will be able to access comprehensive and detailed information across the country, making their service delivery more consistent. In addition public sector organisations, such as Department for Work and Pension (DWP) and HMRC will be able to use this data to underpin their responsibilities across the entire country’
