Postcodes for the United Kingdom
Postcodes are a simple but convenient way to locate customers, assets, competitors – in fact, anything with an address. Enriching your address data with coordinates is a process known as geocoding and is the first step in adding location intelligence to your data assets located in the United Kingdom.
Postcode centroids (centre points) are suitable for coarse-level searches and geocoding, while postcode regions (polygons) can be highly effective for visualisation purposes.
We provide Postcode Sectors for the United Kingdom, as both centroids and regions, with seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries. The data is available in all common GIS data formats.
