Geographic reference files

Does anyone know if the following geographic reference products exist?
  • Geographic attribute file - 2001
  • Block face data file - 2001 and onwards


We believe that the block face data file was discontinued for 2001 onwards due to concerns about maintaining confidentiality.

There is more information on the block-face definition, and changes made to it in 2001, in the Illustrated Glossary:

I couldn’t find the file in our 2001 Geography folder either, I asked someone and I was told that GeoSuite 2001 offers the same data as the 2001 Geographic Attribute File.

It can be downloaded from the Geography page of our website:
