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


There is no geospatial link for the postcodes. All that's available is the postcodes themselves with corresponding place names on the Belgian Postal Office (bpost) which is partially owned by the Belgian government (privatised public office). (https://www.bpost.be/site/nl/residential/customerservice/search/postal_codes.html). Unchanged since review in 2014.
