SuperPro Postcode Sector Boundaries

Prices start from £3,250

 

The SuperPro Boundaries takes the best of the flagship Geoplan Pro Sector Boundaries with its historical value from the original Royal Mail paper maps and the realignment of the boundary where applicable using Postcode geography at the full unit level.  Developed in conjunction with Cranfield University which involved over 900 man days of investment spread over a 2 year period. 

Further to this the Postcode Sector Boundaries used a mapbase up to 1:15,000 map scale to help align the geography. This has resulted in a very detailed boundary which can be used for the most demanding of analysis.

Overview

The SuperPro Boundaries takes the best of the flagship Geoplan Pro Sector Boundaries with its historical value from the original Royal Mail paper maps and the realignment of the boundary where applicable using Postcode geography at the full unit level.  Developed in conjunction with Cranfield University which involved over 900 man days of investment spread over a 2 year period. 

Further to this the Postcode Sector Boundaries used a mapbase up to 1:15,000 map scale to help align the geography. This has resulted in a very detailed boundary which can be used for the most demanding of analysis.

Non-Geographic postcodes

The Non-Geographic Postcode files (Sector and District level) contain additional information to the Sectors which do not have a geographical boundary associated with them.

This includes transitional sectors which exist when there are sectors lacking boundary information or which do not feature within the boundary product.

Boundaries will be digitised for these transitional sectors as and when enough information becomes available.

Coverage

Geoplan is one of the few data suppliers to provide full UK coverage with the addition of Isle of Man and the Channel Islands for Postcode geography. 

Where the level of local coverage information varies and could affect accuracy, Geoplan have used the next most accurate source.

For example,  the Channel Islands has not been matched to the full Postcode but to the Royal Mail source maps to keep the cost of the product appropriate for our end users.

Coastline and Inland Water

The coastline follows the high water line (where possible). However minor adjustments where the coast was highly convoluted e.g. salt marsh areas to minimise the complexity of these locations.

Inland water

Inland water bodies are not included as 'holes' in Geoplan boundaries, although there is one exception - Lough Neagh in Northern Ireland.

Isle of Man

The product contains the Isle of Man Sectors IM1 0, IM2 0, IM3 0 and IM8 0 created by Geoplan to be used in place of the Districts IM1, IM2, IM3 and IM8 as the boundaries of the Sectors within them cannot be determined.
