The AddressBase Toolkit has been developed to provide a visualisation of AddressBase data for MapInfo users, allowing the use of AddressBase within your GIS without the cost or complexity of a full database management system.Find out more
The AddressBase range of addressing products are the largest, most accurate and comprehensive address datasets available in the United Kingdom.
At Aligned Assets we have been heavily involved with the NLPG and AddressBase datasets since their inception. Our customers within the local authority and emergency services sectors extensively use these datasets, and through this we realised that some users simply wish to use AddressBase data in their GIS without the complexity and cost associated with a database management system.
We decided to create the AddressBase Toolkit as a means by which all users can benefit from the success of the AddressBase dataset.
Using our knowledge of AddressBase data we have introduced a number of business logic rules including:
- Delivery Point Address (DPA) taken where DPA and LPI exists.
- Addressable LPIs are also shown, where no DPA exists.
- Non Addressable LPIS are also shown ie bus shelters, electricity sub-stations, telephone boxes etc.
- Historic and Provisional addresses are also provided.
Upon completion of the import users can immediately start using our quick and powerful searching technology to retrieve and view the data they require.
The AddressBase csv format can be complex to use within a GIS. The AddressBase Toolkit carries out all the heavy lifting to convert the data into a meaningful format without the user having to know the AddressBase data structure.
