Mapperz requests Testers for UK Geocoding

Since the hot topic. UK Addresses -Geocoded via Google Maps API
and then our hopes dashed. Mapperz has done some research and development into Geocoding UK Addresses for Free.

(A bold claim, as due to 'contractual reasons' it cannot be done in the UK, as the USA & Canada can with the Google Maps API)

Well it is here:
UK Address Geocoder Alpha - 10 Downing Street - Zoomed OutUK Address Geocoder Alpha - 221B Baker Street - Zoomed InUK Address Geocoder Alpha - 12 College Road - Zoomed InAddress Geocoder Alpha - 30 Royal Avenue,Belfast - Zoomed In

What we are after are people willing to test the accuarcy of this service. It is not 100% accurate (more 93%) but for free it is worth it.
