What is GPS?

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a navigation system made up of approximately 30 satellites, which orbit Earth 20,000km above sea-level. Data is transmitted to Earth constantly, and this data is picked up by devices such as smartphones. GPS works through trilateration, measuring your position’s distance from satellites, and provides access to free global location information, not affected by time or weather conditions.

GPS is widely used by drivers and pedestrians finding their way to a location. Once your location services have identified your customer’s position, Loqate is then able to convert this to the nearest latitude/longitude and return a list of accurate addresses.

What is AddressBase Premium?

With an additional 3 million addresses to Royal Mail’s PAF, Address Base Premium data from Loqate cross references third party datasets, including local authority current addresses. Unlike other data sets, it contains multiple versions of the same address for a greater chance of matching. Address Base Premium also allows you to locate a single property – accurate to within 10cm.
