PLACE NAME SEARCH LAUNCHplacename search
May 12, 2021
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new Place Name search option on MapServe. With this you are now able to locate a feature using just its name or find the closest location to a given point. This can be useful when for example, the postcode isn't known or the location you need doesn't have an address, like a natural feature.
This search option comes in addition to the options that already exist on our website.
The 5 search options shown above are:
- Place Name
- OS Grid Reference Number
By using the Place Name search you are able to look for:
- Street names e.g. Acacia Avenue
- Town/village e.g. Middle Wallop
- Natural features e.g. Leith Hill
Here is a help video to show how to use the Place Name search.
