OS AddressBase Premium

The ultimate address database of Great Britain

As the flagship address database from Ordnance Survey, AddressBase Premium gives you the most up-to-date, accurate information about addresses, properties and land areas where services are provided. With alternative names and full building life cycle information, you will have all the information you need to shape the way you plan, operate and communicate with your audience.

OS AddressBase Premium

OS AddressBase Premium

AddressBase Premium provides the most detailed view of an address and its life cycle for England, Wales and Scotland. It has over 40 million addresses and 100 million cross references as well as providing all the information relating to an address or property from creation to retirement. OS AddressBase Premium is provided on a six week update cycle.

The product contains Local Authority, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail addresses. This includes alternative addresses for current records where available, indicating variations on the official addresses; and provisional addresses (proposed planning developments), and historic information (demolished properties) where available.

OWPA (Objects Without a Postal Address) and Cross References to VOA data and products such as the OS MasterMap Topography Layer are also included.

Data Enrichment with UPRN

OS AddressBase Premium can be used in any application which requires the precise location of an address. It can also be used to enrich records in your data with the Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN).  UPRNs allows different databases to be connected based on a unique frame of reference – location.

Adding the UPRN to databases can help make deeper sense of data once it’s all linked together.  Every property in Great Britain has a UPRN, and OS AddressBase Premium adds a precise location. This accurate and consistent reference system links people across multiple services, enabling data analytics and unlocking predictive insights that can underpin policy making.
