Significant enhancements made to our UKBuildings data
This year we expanded our UKBuildings database so that building location (footprints), height, use and residential type classifications are available for the whole of Great Britain and the Belfast urban area in Northern Ireland.
The update extends and enriches the current classifications of buildings, including age, use, residential type and structural information, with the addition of data from Energy Performance Certificates, new Ordnance Survey (OS) Open Identifiers and other open data.
We also made our UKBuildings data accessible via an API (Application Programming Interface). The UKBuildings API allows developers to integrate detailed property level data into applications and services.
As a result of these enhancements, it is now easier than ever to learn more about the detailed characteristics of buildings across Great Britain from a single data source.
