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

Data Location



The Isle of Man Government still owns the Isle of Man Post Office. Postcode searches require a registered email address (free) and rate limited to 10 searches per day. The government IT department sells the postcode/geolocation dataset to a very small customer base of couriers, dairy co-operative doorstep milk delivery service, Tesco, etc. An IT services company (https://www.afd.co.uk/) also resell geolocation datasets and data cleansing services.
