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

  • Boarders poligone

Data Location



The website of the postal service has details about the location of postal offices, but does not provide any details on postal codes and their correspondence geospatial locations. It is suspected that Egypt does not use an address system that links postal addresses to physical locations.

Reviewer comments

I rejected the original entry instead of amending it to reflect the correct information. I'm accepting this after I entered it myself. This dataset is not available in Egypt.
