The Digital National Framework is set to be incorporated in the Open Address initiative by the Location Information Specialist Group (LISG).
LISG is part of the Chartered Institute of IT and explains that Open Addresses has been chosen to take the Digital National Framework (DNF) forward. The group is the first to be run by the Open Data Institute.
The DNF was put together by a group of small and medium-sized software companies, such as 1Spatial, Dotted Eyes and Manchester Geomatics. The groups worked with Ordnance Survey and the British Geological Survey to define an approach for linking geospatial data that led to the production of a number of best practice guidelines.
As a result of the DNF work, Great Britain encouraged the EU INSPIRE programme to adopt existing Universal Resource Identifiers as record codes rather than developing another Unique Reference Number from nothing.
The Open Address will seek to extend the Open Address data model, linked URLs and API services to support open data UPRNs, as well as reporting on how the UPRN for properties can be established without copyrighted address products.
Jeni Tennison, executive director at Open Addresses, said: “We’re delighted to receive this landmark funding from BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. As our first funding beyond our initial Cabinet Office grant, this support is a demonstration of the wide interest in open address data.
“Addresses are a vital part of the nation’s information infrastructure. This funding will help promote the use of a common code for each address, enabling people to match and bring data together and to create better services that we can all benefit from.”
Open Addresses gathers data via a number of methods, with static bulk data, linked data on the internet and a set of APIs all being able to be used to develop digital services.
