With this API, you’ll enable users to identify addresses accurately, quickly, and with reliable high levels of detail. OS Places API has the benefit of accessing historic data in the property’s lifecycle too, which should reduce ambiguity throughout. It opens up three essential, time and money-saving pieces of functionality:

 

  • Geosearch – enabling finds of addresses or reverse geocoding via radius search, or by drawing a boundary box. 

 

  • Matching & Cleansing – integrating with existing systems to enable faster, more accurate postcode look-ups and autocompletion on websites and Enterprise customer service systems.

 

  • Capture & Verification – checking address data, quickly and reliably, to enable deduping of entries in already populated databases and provide verified uniformity.
