A database of postcodes/zipcodes and the corresponding spatial locations in terms of a latitude and a longitude (or similar coordinates in an openly published national coordinate system). If a postcode/zipcode system does not exist in the country, please submit a dataset of administrative borders. Data submitted in this category must satisfy the following minimum conditions

  • Zipcodes
  • Address
  • Coordinate (latitude longitude)
  • national level
  • updated once a year

  • Administrative boundaries

  • Boarders poligone
  • name of poligone (city, neighborhood)
  • national level
  • updated once a year

Data Location


A dataset with information on the region, district and municipality of a ZIP code is available on the government's open data portal, but this dataset does not contain geo-coordinates, https://www.data.gv.at/datensatz/?id=b9ba4b86-f04c-4a0e-96c4-188063e2668f. No dataset that meets the description of this survey appears to be publicly available at this point. Further observation: The Statistical Agency Austria holds related geospatial data. Apparently, data can be purchased from the agency. Data is available here on OpenGeoDB: https://www.datendieter.de/item/Postleitzahlen_Oesterreich. On the webpage of the Austrian Postal Service user can search for a postal code, but no geospatial information is provided. That geospatial data exist can be verified here: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postleitzahl_%28%C3%96sterreich%29
