The registry contains fields to record coordinates of ICPs. Each distributor responsible for ICPs is able to populate these fields and we strongly encourage them to do so. However, populating them is not mandated in the Code.
Some users of the ICP connection data API are keen to utilise this locational information and might expect the information to be available for all ICPs. The following table shows the proportion of ICPs that have these fields populated as at 30 June 2016. It is great to see some distributors leading the way here. These networks provide a good opportunity to prototype any application that uses the API and requires this information.
Geocoded ICPs at 30 June 2016
Guidance for the population of these fields in the registry is provided here and attached.
