OpenData

One of the most important things an OpenPostcode can achieve is to add richness to government OpenData. At present little enough data is open and much less has a location field - removing spatial calculations and analysis potential. If an open-code postcode were to become a standard component of addressing then all government address data would immediately become more useful. Examples here are given an OpenPostcode field, while including the example of the government dataset on schools in Ireland which is badly missing a location field.
