AddressHub – More than just addresses

AddressHub – more than just addresses

AddressHub is built upon the most prominent source of addresses in Great Britain, the Royal Mail Postcode Address File (PAF®). By including the Multiple Residences (MR) and Not-Yet-Built (NYB) data extensions, this comprehensive product contains over 32 million records. In addition to standard PAF fields, AddressHub has been significantly enhanced with additional attributes.

Use AddressHub to streamline data capture, enrich your data holdings and deliver better services.

PAF with a cherry on top

AddressHub enhances PAF by adding rich attributes which give depth and context to searches. This makes it ideal for property intelligence applications. The product includes UPRN, coordinates, plot size, plot multiplicity, residential property type, ONS administrative regions, Welsh names and a registered business indicator. Please note that some fields are not applicable/available for every address record.

Every property in Great Britain has a UPRN which allows simple linking and cross-referencing to other data sets. AddressHub also adds a precise location with British National Grid, Latitude/Longitude and web/spherical Mercator coordinates.
