We help insurance providers identify accumulations of risk for both commercial and residential properties at the postcode or address level. Our suite of underwriting tools uses high-resolution aerial imagery, street level mapping, property construction details, and data models that predict the relative risk and variation of major insurance perils.


Addresses are fundamental to identifying areas of interest and our geocoding capabilities provides spatial enrichment to address based data. Whether through the provision of Free Online Locators, OS Premium Address Products or building locators in the ArcGIS Platform we are here to help you.


Loqate Geo+ is the newest dataset from Loqate, combining Ordnance Survey’s UPRNs and UDPRNs with Geocodes and Royal Mail’s Postal Address File (PAF®).

How to improve business processes with AddressBase

As your business grows and starts to make more revenue, inefficient internal processes may become a strain on your finances. Ordnance Survey uses local authority, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail Postcode Address File (PAF) address data to create the most reliable, up to date addressing data available, allowing you to cut internal process costs by tightening up time consuming, resource intensive tasks.

Improve data reliability

Unreliable location data is a primary cause of lost revenue for many businesses. Whether you’re choosing a geographical area to invest in, identifying customer address details or planning a marketing campaign in a specific location, AddressBase provides the most accurate data available, using a variety of data sources which are updated regularly, ensuring you have data you can rely on at all times in order to effectively achieve your goals.

Make better informed decisions

Businesses which make decisions back by in-depth, quality data are much more likely to see a positive return on investment. The more data you have available to you, the better informed your decisions will be. AddressBase provides classification of a property for your business to understand the use at different levels of granularity. Distinguish between residential and commercial properties as well as finding houses of multiple occupation.

Customer identity verification

Identity fraud can be very damaging to revenue figures, with fake or stolen identities creating a place for criminals to hide and take advantage of your business. With AddressBase, these criminals have nowhere to hide, as its cross referencing, identity verification and risk detection capabilities keep your business safe. From understanding alternative address names to identifying property types, AddressBase protects your business from fraud.
