National Address Gazetteer Event Announced For 6th October 2011

Woking, Surrey 26th July 2011 – Gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets are pleased to announce a new, free of charge event designed to provide both the public and private sector with information about the National Address Gazetteer.

Scheduled for Thursday 6th October 2011 at Hammersmith Town Hall in London, the event will comprise two sections, with s ection one dealing with the question, ‘What is the National Address Gazetteer’ and section two looking at ‘How to use the National Address Gazetteer’.

There will be presentations from GeoPlace, who are the custodians of the National Address Gazetteer, explaining how this single, definitive source of national address data will be formed, what the data will comprise and it’s relevance to all public and private sector organisations.

There will also be a presentation from a leading local authority that will explain how the bulk of the address data is created.  This will demonstrate how the National Address Gazetteer will be updated daily and benefit from hundreds of people in the local government community whose sole responsibility is to maintain its accuracy and integrity.

Presentations will then be given on ways that organisations can make use of the National Address Gazetteer, including examples of real-life situations in which its use as this single, definitive source, throughout an organisation, can facilitate real efficiencies, shared services and a far higher level of joined up working.

Also scheduled for the autumn is the latest in the series of Gazetteer Best Practice Days, which will be on 29th September in Stirling.  It will see presentations and debate from across the Scottish gazetteer community including local government, the emergency services, Scottish Government and the private sector.

Speaking of the forthcoming events, managing director of Aligned Assets, Dinesh Thanigasalam said, “The National Address Gazetteer is probably the biggest thing to ever occur in the gazetteer community.  It’s got the potential to create huge savings and far higher levels of efficiency, not just for public sector organisations such as the NHS, emergency services and central government, for whom it will be available free of charge, but also to private sector organisations such as the utilities, banking and insurance.”

“Our Scottish Gazetteer Best Practice Day will be focusing on the specific issues affecting organisations in Scotland.  In addition to those surrounding the creation and use of the One Scotland Gazetteer, there will also be a discussion and debate about the National Address Gazetteer and how through it we might one day see a unified address source covering England, Wales and Scotland.”
