Postcodes to Latitude and LongitudeALPHA
We think privacy is very important. If your file contains postcodes that constitute personal data, you might be worried about using a web-based tool like this. However, we have designed this tool to minimise the privacy implications. None of the raw data you enter here gets uploaded to our server; it stays in your web browser. Obviously, we have to do a postcode lookup so we do that by requesting an entire postcode block e.g. all of
LS (Leeds) or all of
BD (Bradford) at a time. That way we can find the coordinates for the postcode in your browser without our server knowing anything other than the broad area. You can also download a copy of this project to run entirely offline if that makes you feel more comfortable. You can also look at the source code to check what it is doing.
