Should export in a similar format to currentlist from freethepostcode, to be run on a nightly basis.

We'll want the following:

  • freethepostcode only
  • npe only
  • outward (average)
  • outawrd + 1st inward (average)

Code committed to svn to do this - source:trunk/

Need to set this up to be run on a nightly basis - Dom can you do this?

Probably just want three of the four exports for now:

  • -npeonly
  • -outer
  • -outer1

Once the nightly export is happening, we can link to them from the site

Hmm, we can start running this but I would like to improve it before we publish it.

In particular I would like to do some analysis when we average postcodes so that we can detect gross inaccuracies.

Eg of each record of an OX1 postcode, throw a warning if they are more than 10k apart (is 10k enough for the outward? Dunno, needs testing) and 1k for the outward (again might not be enough).

I think we should probably have the sanity checking in another application. We'll probably want it to show us where the postcodes are, so we can take a look and see if they look sane or not

I guess the app would run, find the averages, then report any postcodes past the threshold with a summary. From there, you can click through to visualise them (distance not too big, but high) or delete (distance shown to be massive)

Right, we now have to report which postcodes look a bit out, based on the averages
