GeoPlace has marked the opening of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee week by mapping street and building names containing ‘Queen’, ‘Jubilee’ and ‘Queen Elizabeth’.
GeoPlace works with every local authority in England and Wales. Local authority Address and Street Custodians from these authorities sent us names from right across the country that mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Using this data, we put together a series of visualisations using Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRNs) and Unique Street Reference Numbers (USRNs), which are the unique numbers given to every property and street across the UK.
As well as these maps, we created an image of the Queen by joining together 6,787 UPRNs with lines (think of a dot-to-dot puzzle, but using properties instead!), with the Queens eye is centred on Buckingham Palace. On the ground, the image covers an area of over 544km2 and just over 695km in length.
