Data Matching Workshop for CORE Compliancy

Released on: September 19, 2008, 3:47 am

Press Release Author: Carl Hancock

Industry: Government

Press Release Summary: The Co-ordinated Online Record of Electors (CORE) is a
Ministry of Justice (MoJ) project to standardise all electoral registers across the
UK and amalgamate them into one national database.

Press Release Body: Since address standardisation exists already within each
authority’s Local Land and Property Gazetteer (LLPG) through the application of
BS7666, the MoJ directive calls for the matching of each electoral register to the
LLPG so that the same level of standardisation can be achieved.

To help facilitate this process, gazetteer specialists Aligned Assets will be
holding a free data matching workshop on 7th October 2008 to advise on the process
and offer simple ways achieve compliancy.

To be held in the historic Shakespeare Memorial Room at Birmingham Central Library
there will be presentations on the CORE project, looking into the motives and
reasoning behind it as well as a presentation from High Peak Borough Council who
were one of the first local authorities to achieve CORE compliancy.

There will be a demonstration of Aligned Assets iMatch, which is an intuitive data
matching software solution that will allow not only for the matching of the
electoral registers but also the matching of all other council address data.

With CORE being just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to address matching,
iMatch is software that can be used to create standardisation across all council

The data matching workshop is available to all people with an interest in CORE or
address matching generally. To reserve your place email or call 01483 717951.
