Ordnance Survey Places (Preview)

The OS Places API provides a detailed view of an address and its life cycle. It contains all the records of AddressBase Premium and so provides all the information relating to an address or property from creation to retirement. It contains local authority, Ordnance Survey and Royal Mail addresses, current addresses, and alternatives for current addresses, provisional addresses (such as planning developments) and historic information.

Ordnance Survey Places lets users identify addresses accurately. Searches interrogate the Local Authority and the Royal Mail address datasets.

Requests can be made using a full or partial address, a postcode, or a unique property ID. Searches can also find addresses closest to a given point or all the addresses known within a user-defined area or circle.

Prerequisites

OS Places API requires an active license with Ordnance Survey. Customers must either sign up for a free trial, or premium subscriptions to generate access key required login to the API Connector.

How to get credentials

To find out more about subscription place options contact Ordnance Survey here: https://developer.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/content/contact-us

Getting started with your connector

The API documentation can be found here https://apidocs.os.uk/docs/os-places-overview

Our getting started guide covers how to build an app in power platform using Ordnance Survey's Places connector and can be found here: https://github.com/OrdnanceSurvey/OS-Places-MS-Power-Platform-Connector

  • Perform a free text address search in power apps: This can be done by adding a text box and a button to a simple canvas. By setting the button's OnSelect to:

    Set (searchResults, OSPlaces.Find ('Search Bar'.Text).results) & UpdateContext({NoSearch: true})

    The results from the search bar can be sent to the OSPlaces.Find definition and the results are stored in a variable called searchResults. The variable can be displayed as a gallery or data table in the canvas.

    This approach is suitable for Find, Postcode, UPRN and coordinate defintions and is a good way to get started with the connector.

Known issues and limitations

The Match and Cleanse resources are not part of this connector as this has primarliy been designed as an address query tool and not a database cleansing tool within Power Platform.

FAQ

If you have any questions about using this connector please see our FAQs: https://developer.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/os-apis-developer-portal-faqs

Creating a connection

The connector supports the following authentication types:

Default Parameters for creating connection. All regions Not shareable

Applicable: All regions

Parameters for creating connection.

This is not shareable connection. If the power app is shared with another user, another user will be prompted to create new connection explicitly.

Actions

Bounding box operation

Takes two points and creates a bounding box. All addresses within this bounding box are then returned.

Find Operation

A free text search designed for quick use e.g. form filling.

Nearest operation

Takes a pair of coordinates (X and Y) as an input to determine the closest address.

Polygon Operation

A POST Request that takes a geoJSON polygon or multi-polygon object and returns all addresses that are in the object.

Postcode operation

A search based on a property's postcode. The minimum for the resource is the area and district e.g. SO16, and will accept a full postcode consisting of the area, district, sector and unit e.g. SO16 0AS

Radius operation

Takes a pair of coordinates as the centre for a circle and returns all addresses that are intersected by it.

UPRN Operation

A search that takes a Unique Property Reference Number (UPRN) as the search parameter.

Bounding box operation

Takes two points and creates a bounding box. All addresses within this bounding box are then returned.

Parameters

Name Key Required Type Description
Bounding box
bbox True string

A pair of comma-separated coordinates with an accuracy of two decimal places or less, that specify the lower left and upper right coordinates of the bounding box. The maximum size of the bounding box is 1 km2. If the bounding box exceeds this, an error message is returned. The precision of the coordinates is to an accuracy of 8 metres.

Result format
format string

The format in which the response will be returned. Default: JSON. Accepted values: JSON, XML

Limit results
maxresults integer

The maximum number of results to return. Default: 100

Offset the result
offset integer

Offset the list of returned by this amount.

Local Authority (LPI) and/or Royal Mail (DPA) address results
dataset string

The address dataset to return. Multiple values can be sent, separated by a comma. Default: DPA. Accepted values: DPA, LPI

Language
lr string

Which language of addresses to return. Valid languages are English and Welsh. Filter only applicable to DPA dataset. Default value is both languages. Default: EN, CY.

Filter
fq string

A filter that allows filtering of results by classification code and/or logical status code. Filtering for classification code will accept wildcard (*) searches. Multiple searches can be done on classification code seperating the classification code parameter with a space. Classification code filters can be ran with logical status code filters by using the parameter multiple times: fq=classification_code:CI classification_code:RD&fq=LOGICAL_STATUS_CODE:6

Output spatial reference system
output_srs string

The intended output spatial reference system. Default: EPSG:27700.

Input coordinate reference system
srs string

The spatial reference system for the input coordinate set.
