Gazetteer Files & Compiler Tool

20/02/2015

The ability to aggregate small area data into larger zones is a particularly valuable tool when working with origin-destination datasets.

In order to help users complete rezoning tasks we have created a bank of 63 Gazetteer Files. The files can be used to rezone standard geographies in England & Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland. In addition we have also created an Excel-based tool which allows users to combine these files to create their own UK-wide gazetteer files.

The Gazetteer files, Gaz Compiler Tool and instruction document can be downloaded here:

GAZ Compiler (zip file, 5Mb). (updated Sept 2015)

Information on how to use gazetteer files in SASPAC can be found in Module 4b of the Training Manual.
