Geographical Information Systems (GIS) software company, Cadcorp, has made significant updates in its latest service release of Cadcorp SIS 9. Geocoding has become easier. Using up-to-date property and street databases, geocoding in Cadcorp SIS Desktop enables searching based on Unique Property Reference Number (via OS Open UPRN) and Unique Street Reference Number (via OS Open USRN). These search local databases, built using data downloaded from the OS Data Hub Downloads API. Updated databases are issued every month and Cadcorp users can download these for the most up-to-date searches. Alternatively, users can now geocode place names and locations directly against the OS Data Hub Names API. Users of the OS Code-Point Open geocoder are now able to add their own new postcode units, or edit the locations of existing units, in order to keep up with local changes.
