OSM Pharmacy Mapping Progress in the 'HG' Postal Area

Note: There is currently no licence to use the pharmacy registration data from the General Pharmaceutical Council in Open Street Map. So you must not make any OpenStreetMap edits based on the circles on the map, or the data in the popups or tables below. The data can be used to inform surveys though. You may also find that some pharmacies are listed in the FHRS dataset, which is available for use in OSM.

In the HG postal area, 21 out of 27 pharmacies are matched to OSM objects, which is 77.8%.

The blue circles on the map are pharmacies on the official register that haven't been matched to an OSM object. The red circles are OSM objects that haven't been matched to a pharmacy on the official register. The green lines represent matches from the register to an OSM object. For more information see below.

Pharmacies not matched to an OSM Object

The matching process is simplistic, so an incorrect matching may result in a different nearby pharmacy being the one that is really missing. Also, it is not currently clear what licence the official register data can be re-used under. Until this is clarified, you should not use the data below directly to add pharmacies to OSM. However, knowing that there is a pharmacy missing in a particular area, you may be able to add that using other sources.

OSM Objects not matched to a pharmacy on the register

Entries here could be due to: Former pharmacies that have now closed, more than one object being tagged for a single pharmacy, the register entry for a real pharmacy being matched incorrectly to a different OSM object, or businesses (e.g. non-dispensing chemists) being tagged incorrectly as pharmacies in OSM. Not all of these entries will be errors in the OSM data, so be careful before making any edits. Also, it is not currently clear what licence the official register data can be re-used under. Until this is clarified, you should not use the data below directly to make edits to OSM.

Note: The entries above are based on a larger bounding box, so will also include unmatched OSM objects from neighbouring postal areas.

Pharmacies matched to an OSM object

Note that the matching is very simplistic, just taking the nearest unmatched OSM pharmacy object within a certain radius of the postcode centroid of each official entry in turn. Where several pharmacies are in close proximity, they may be matched incorrectly.
