BS 7666-2:2006

Spatial datasets for geographical referencing. Specification for a land and property gazetteer

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : July 2006



This part of BS 7666 specifies the logical data structure for a gazetteer of land and property, consistent with Part 0 of this standard. It is based upon the concept of a basic land and property unit (BLPU), and specifies the data to be recorded and maintained in a gazetteer. It also specifies the way in which the boundary of a BLPU may be represented and linked to the gazetteer. It does not provide a database design or a transfer format.

This part of BS 7666 is intended for use by those compiling land and property gazetteers, for a range of purposes including property records and addressing. It enables different users of land and property information to link different land and property identifiers (LPI) via a common unique property reference number (UPRN).

Contents include:

  • Foreword 
  • Introduction 
  • Scope 
  • Normative references 
  • Terms and definitions 
  • Land and property gazetteer requirements 
  • Gazetteer metadata 
  • Basic land and property units 
  • Land and property identifiers 
  • BLPU provenance 
  • BLPU extents 
  • BLPU extent polygon 
  • Data quality.

The main changes that have been made to this Part of the Standard are as follows:

  • The structure, content and terminology are made consistent with new general model in Part 0
  • The structure and content are made consistent with the revised Part 1
  • The addition of a requirement for gazetteer metadata
  • The addition of a facility for recording descriptive identifiers in multiple languages
  • The addition of a facility for classification of BLPUs
  • The addition of a facility for cross-referencing to other datasets
  • The addition of an identifier for an LPI
  • Change to the role of provenance
  • Field lengths are no longer prescribed
  • Addition of a requirement for a data quality report
  • Other minor changes in the light of experience of use.
