OS AddressBase Plus Data

AddressBase Plus

AddressBase™ Plus includes National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) and the Royal Mail Postcode Address File (PAF), plus extra features for address classification. ​

Product Details

The Address products have been produced by GeoPlace, a joint venture between Ordnance Survey and the Local Government Group.

The AddressBase™ Plus product includes the best parts of local government’s National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) and the Royal Mail Postcode Address File (PAF), plus extra features for address classification. 

AddressBase™ Plus is the richer product in the range and is analogous with the legacy OS AddressLayer 2 product. Attributes include the Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN), Unique Delivery Reference Point Number (UDPRN), four levels of classification for the type of address, method of calculating the x,y position, as well as all standard address details with x,y coordinates. Additional language options for addresses are also provided, along with the local authority and parish code, VOA codes, non-addressable objects such as churches and community centres, and multiple occupancy property information. All these additional attributes are not available within the standard basic AddressBase product, therefore we recommend AddressBase Plus for the majority of commercial and professional uses.
