Greenwich wins Data Quality and Improvement Award

The Royal Borough of Greenwich has been presented with a ‘Data Quality & Improvement Award’ in recognition of the management of its street information database.

The award was presented at the GeoPlace annual conference and presentation of the Exemplar Awards 2017, which celebrate excellence in service delivery that have been enabled through local government address and street information.

Street data is not only used within councils but is also incorporated into a national Highways dataset – Ordnance Survey’s Highways Network. The resulting data is a combination of data from local highway authorities via the National Street Gazetteer, Highways England data from the Trunk Road Street Gazetteer and accurate detailed geometry and additional road content from OS.

The Award is given to the authority which has shown the most improvement over the last year in England and Wales.

In presenting the Award to the council, Richard Groombridge, National Street Data Manager at Geoplace said: “The Royal Borough of Greenwich has achieved the greatest improvement in data quality which demonstrates excellence and commitment to a process that brings local and national benefits.
