Few GIS studies have demonstrated a preparedness to grapple with the messy empirical problems which beset applied research. This paper uses a detailed case study to illustrate some of the problems which are encountered when attempting to integrate widely used urban data sources into a disaggregate GIS. We also anticipate the prospects for information management in the light of apparent changes in the availability of property registers in the UK and the innovation of the UK Ordnance Survey's "Address-Point" product.
