About INSPIRE polygons

INSPIRE Index Polygons is an open source dataset, developed to comply with the INSPIRE Directive. It contains the locations of freehold registered property in England and Wales, a sub-set of our Index Polygons for all freehold land and property.

Polygons are shapes that show the position and indicative extent of a registered property. Each INSPIRE Index Polygon has a unique identification number called the Land Registry-INSPIRE ID that relates to a registered title.
