So as not to break applications expecting Sector postcodes in the API, there is a new API endpoint:
API requests against this domain will give the position of the full postcode, and also reverse geocode (return you the nearest) full postcode!
- The Original URL for the API is still available – and will continue to be. I’ve also taken the opportunity to add a version number to the URL. It’s been 4 years since I created this API, and learnt lots in that time, so should be able to create a better version 2 When introduce that don’t want to break compatibility.
Of course the ‘Coordinate Convertor‘ is now using CodePoint Open too – the end of having to pay a commercial provider!
(sorry this has taken so long, OS Opendata was introduced at the beginning of the month!, its been a busy month)
