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


Currently the free downloads of the Zipcodes DO NOT include location data i.e. coordinates and boundaries of the Zip-code areas.

Direct link to download the data without coordinates (ftp://ftp2.itella.com/) requires a HTTP username and password. Itella is a northern European business services and logistics firm (see www.itella.com). Coordinate data can be purchased from elsewhere.
