Nearby.org.uk Geocoder - UK Postcodes - GB Grid References - Lat/Long

Contains Royal Mail data © Royal mail copyright and database right 2010.

This page documents a geocoder/coordinate converter service, that brings together various conversions that this site can perform. It is not a true geocoder(wikipedia) in the true sense of the word, in that its unable to convert full textual address, I think its more of a coordinate converter that happens to perform some basic geocoding function. Currently can handle GB Grid References, Worldwide Lat/Long, US Zipcodes, and UK Postcodes. The postcodes are also useable in reverse geocoding fashion in that you can lookup the nearest postcode to a location. Try out these conversions online in the online coordinate converter

Support nearby.org.uk and help keep it free!

I quite happy for this to be used in non profit applications.

If you wish to use this in a commercial application, then bear in mind I can offer no guarantees about availability.

If however there is interest I will consider creating a commercial version, (maybe even with full postcodes).

Even if you are only interesting in Sector Postcodes, then please Signup to download a CSV with to lat/long only and/or contact me to get various formats of the sector postcodes dumps, as that would probably be less resource hungary than quering a webservice.

Full Unit Postcodes can be obtained direct from OS Code-Point Open

Similarlly if only interested in the Lat/Long to/from Grid Refernce (or other coordinate conversions) as can probably supply source code for php/perl. (but first see the Downloads page)
