The Royal Mail’s Postcode Address File is a database that contains over 40 million postal addresses, including business addresses, residential addresses, PO boxes, and other types of delivery points that are not traditional street addresses. You can use this file with different types of postal technologies to improve your ability to deliver mail to your customers and users of your services.
How does reverse geocoding work?
This process uses the latitude and longitude of an address to determine its approximate street location. Reverse geocoding can be used to translate a street address into a location on the map or vice versa. This is useful, for example, if you want to show your customers on a map where their shipments are in transit.
