Specifically for the Welsh Gazetteer community, this best practice day will be held at the Media Resource Centre in Llandrindod on 2nd November 2010 and will see presentations from local authorities, the emergency services and the Welsh Assembly Government. Departing slightly from the structure of former events, One Wales – One Voice will see more opportunity for discussion and debate, and through this an opportunity to have a say on the future of addressing throughout Wales.
Wales has unique requirements when it comes to address management, going from the large metropolitan areas such as Cardiff and Swansea, through to the vast mountainous expanses covered by the County of Powys. This uniqueness not only affects the creation of address data, but has large repercussions for those relying on the data such as the police, fire and ambulance services. Speaking of the latest addition to the Best Practice Calendar, Managing Director of Aligned Assets, Dinesh Thanigasalam said, “With the recent licensing of the NLPG by the Welsh Assembly Government the landscape of addressing in Wales is changing.”
“We are moving toward a convergence and a time in which the whole of Wales will be using the same data source. With convergence though comes a need for greater understanding, which is why we are bringing so many diverse voices together to create One Wales – One Voice.” The event is open to anyone who is involved in the creation, management or use of address data in Wales.
