OS Code-Point with Polygons

With over 1.6 million postcodes all mapped out, OS Code-Point with Polygons brings geographic analysis location to life and helps you make better decisions.

For compelling visuals, OS Code-Point with Polygons lets you apply shading to individual postcodes on a map. This means you can analyse location data at the most granular level and bring your results vividly to life. The product includes every single postcode in Great Britain – including those for different floors of high-rise buildings.

For accuracy, we give every postcode a positional quality rating and map out the boundaries of only the postcodes we can locate most precisely.

The product is updated quarterly in February, May, August and November.
