UK Postcode Data

I'm now offering a UK postcode data file containing the longitute and latitude for full UK postcodes (not just outfields). Here's a sample:

LS61DH:53.8139004149156:-1.57013758343434
LS61DJ:53.8147992884429:-1.57012838559871
LS61DL:53.813911262566:-1.57317538719233
LS61DN:53.8147992884429:-1.57012838559871
LS61DP:53.8166024690639:-1.57162898755877
LS61DQ:53.8156981618341:-1.57011918726391
LS61DR:53.8139004149156:-1.57013758343434
LS61DS:53.8130069745156:-1.57166564990514
LS61DT:53.8130123885475:-1.57318451953679
LS61DU:53.813911262566:-1.57317538719233
LS61DW:53.8148155316019:-1.57468518947338
LS61DX:53.812113514393:-1.57319365138567
LS61DY:53.8130123885475:-1.57318451953679

As you can see, both infield and outfield are given, and there are just under 2.3 million records in total, making it extremely comprehensive.

The data is around 3 months old now, and was compiled by myself (ie it's not just a copy of the Royal Mail's PAF file).

If anyone would like a copy, the price is 80 pounds. My email is andy_taylor@ftml.net
