OS Open Names
OS Open Names is a comprehensive dataset of place names, roads numbers and postcodes for Great Britain.
This product is updated quarterly
Let your customer-facing staff find places quickly when talking to callers. OS Open Names provides the accurate locations of streets and postcodes in Great Britain.
Quickly look up places and roads with two names. OS Open Names contains place name data in English and their Welsh, Scots or Gaelic alternatives.
OS Open Names contains over 870,000 named and numbered roads, nearly 44,000 settlements and over 1.6 million postcodes, all matched/mapped to the National Grid.
OS Open Names doesn’t go down to the level of locations of individual houses, but it does show the location of roads. It also tells your GIS how far to zoom out to show the full length of your street. For property locations, you will need one of the OS AddressBase products.
If your work requires the full postal address, we recommend AddressBase products.
