MM Pro high resolution postcode sector, district and area boundaries and centroids: Created using AMD Unit postcode points and detailed Ordnance Survey street mapping, these boundaries are digitised at 1:10,000 scale.
MM Pro high resolution postcode district and area boundaries and centroids: A lower priced subset of data that omits the postcode sectors.
MM low resolution postcode sector, district and area boundaries and centroids: Created from the AMD Pro product, these boundaries have had complex intermediate vertices removed, allowing quicker drawing times and online applications. These reduced boundaries still contain the same attributes and records as the Pro product, and have only lost 1% accuracy as a result of their simplification.
