PointX expands supporting documentation
Having a unique, detailed “all encompassing” classification system can
be a little daunting for new or potential users of PointX data. In order to help
with the understanding of the “what is where” and linking of PointX
data to other information which users might hold, PointX has produced some detailed
supporting documentation to help. This includes a commentary at PointX class level
showing what terms and major brand names are reported in each class whilst another
document gives SIC 2003 and SIC 2007 codes which apply to each PointX class.
“With the wealth of Points of Interest types that PointX reports it was
felt important to assist users in whatever ways we could to understand where records
are going to be classified and how the PointX classification system fits with other
classification standards that users might already have access to” said Ian Woolnough
the PointX Development Manager. Building on earlier documentation linking into Local
Government Business category List version 1.00 and detail of data providers contributing
to PointX this documentation is expected to add even more value for customers.
