The service maps U.K. postcodes and specific location parameters, defining map polygons and current or past administrative areas for the locations. It accepts either complete or partial postcode values, SRID values for specific points, or area identifiers. Mapping parameters returned are based on data from the Ordinance Survey, the Royal Mail, and the Office for National Statistics.
API methods support submission of one or more postcodes, complete or partial, to be mapped. Methods also allow submission of one or more identifiers (SRID values or values from the British National Grid or Irish National Grid) for specific points or areas. Returned data provide map points or polygons, depending on the values input.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
