National Street Gazetteer

The Street Gazetteer for Scotland holds the national road network.

Data is supplied by each of Scotland’s 32 local authorities, along with Transport Scotland.

The dataset contains information relating to road surface materials, maintenance responsibility, and underground structural features.


Street gazetteers are collated by the Spatial Information Service at the Improvement Service, where robust quality assurance is carried out. Consequently, the data adheres to nationally agreed conventions.

Unique Street Reference Number (USRN)

The National Street Gazetteer is available to members of the Public Sector Geospatial Agreement and contains the USRN – the unique ID of each street.
