OS Places services

OS Places enables you to fetch the address and precise locations of properties, assets and objects within a geographic area – in real time, whenever and wherever you need it.

  • Create a common operating picture of where people live, work or play within a vicinity.
  • Plan and understand what you might be dealing with in the event of an emergency situation.
  • Improve the effectiveness of consultations by accurately identifying all property and business occupiers within a given distance from a location.

How does that work?

The OS Places GeoSearch service enables you to request details of addresses within a specific geospatial area, such as a circle encompassing all properties within a given radius of a school. Once a query specifying a central location, coordinate and a distance has been submitted to the service, a list of all addresses within that circle can be retrieved.
