New Beta Feature - Overhanging Tree


Hi Beta Testers,

New to beta this week is more data from our Geoscape® dataset. The ‘OverhangingTree’ attribute lets you know if there is a tree intersecting the boundary of a building. We believe this could be useful for customers in the insurance or energy sectors. Don't leave risk to chance. Use this new data to reduce your risk profile and understand potential challenges with solar installation without the need for a site visit.

New Beta Feature - ASGS Remoteness Areas


Hi Beta Testers,

Following discussions with our valued beta dev community, we're looking at adding more data from our friends at @ABSStats, specifically the ASGS Remoteness Areas off the Remoteness Structure. This addition will help you find the remoteness classifications of addresses from both the 2011 and 2016 national census data.

Have your say on primary building identification in our Addresses API


Hi Beta Testers, 

As we continue to respond to your feedback on our APIs, we’ve developed a new feature that will reduce the number of calls required to identify the primary building at any given address. This time and money saver is designed to help you quickly and efficiently locate important details about an address and building.

New Feature Alert!


Hi Beta Testers,

As part of our valued Beta testing group, we’re providing you with advance access to the latest Buildings API feature. We’ve just added a reverse geocoder that provides another way into our award-winning Geoscape dataset.
You don't need to provide a location address, simply point us in the right direction and we’ll do the rest. So if you have a lat/long we can provide details of the closest building or you can set a radius up to 100 metres – feedback is welcome as we may increase this – and we’ll return everything within that range.

New Release of Addresses API (Reverse Geocoder)


Hey Developers,

We've released a new version of the Addresses  API. In this release we've added in a feature that has been largely requested, we now have a reverse geocoder. At this time it's a simple reverse geocoder allowing you to query the addresses endpoint with a latitude and longitude separated by a comma. In addition, you can specify the radius on that point to search the default is 50 meters. search results are returned in an ordered list from closest to furthest from the supplied lat long. We'd love some feedback on how we can improve the reverse geocoder.

We've got a status page!


Hey Developers,

We've taken on feedback and acknowledged that it's really important for you all to know when our services are up and performing as they should be. Because of this, we have implemented an automated status page that will display the current state of each of the APIs based on a bunch of automated tests. In the event of a test failure (an API call isn't working the way it should), we'll update the status of the status page and then update it again when the tests are passing.

Beta APIs updated


Hey Developers, 

We've released a new version of both Addresses and Buildings API. This has the breaking change to standardizing to lowerCamelCase, the good news is as we've standardised now we shouldn't run into this kind of issue in the future. All new APIs will also follow the pattern of using lowerCamelCase.
