It’s amazing to think that such a key dataset was not easily accessible until so recently. Without doubt this is just the type of data set that the “free our data” movement was calling to be made freely available.
The type of innovation that comes from the increased accessibility of information is well demonstrated by the code point web service developed by Stuart Harrison over the weekend at http://www.uk-postcodes.com/ and documented on the uk-government-data-developers mailing list.
What a difference a week makes !!
