Postcode boundaries are widely used across all business sectors for planning and managing geographic assets and operational structures. Common functions where postcode boundaries can benefit your business are:
The Boundaries have been created from Ordnance Survey location data which have a Positional Quality Indicator (PQI) indicating that the contributing grid references are “Within the building of the matched address closest to the postcode’s mean, determined automatically by Ordnance Survey.” The result is a set of boundaries that will fall correctly between the contributing Postcode locations. It should be noted that as these boundaries are created programmatically so they will not accurately follow natural or man-made bounding features such as rivers, canals or road networks. An example of the accuracy of the data is shown in the images on the postcode boundaries product specification document.
