GeoPlace appoints Richard Duffield as National Address Database Custodian

November 21, 2011 -- Richard Duffield has been appointed as the UK’s National Address Gazetteer Custodian.  This is a new role within GeoPlace and has been created to coordinate the on-going arrangements for the management of the National Address Gazetteer Database, from which AddressBase products from Ordnance Survey are produced.

GeoPlace is a public sector limited liability partnership between the Local Government Association and Ordnance Survey.  GeoPlace’s role is to create and maintain the National Address Gazetteer Database and the National Street Gazetteer for England and Wales, providing definitive sources of publicly-owned spatial address and street data. 

Richard will manage the operations of the National Address Gazetteer Database in order to ensure data is delivered to users with the highest levels of quality and timeliness.  He will work closely with Neil Silley, the National Land and Property Gazetteer (NLPG) and Simon Bailey, the National Street Gazetteer (NSG) Custodians and other data owners who provide the core sources of intelligence to the National Address Gazetteer Database. 

Richard will  be responsible for ensuring that the requirements of all stakeholders – including local government, Ordnance Survey and the PSMA community - are met, as well as compliance to the INSPIRE directive and UK Location Strategy.

Richard will provide direct input into the strategic direction of the National Address Gazetteer Database.

Previously, Duffield was technical consultant at GeoPlace with responsibility for maximising the use and value of the NLPG within the user community.
