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