Data Location


Iran has 10 digits postal codes for each and every place (see here https://www.post.ir/DesktopModules/Articles/ArticlesView.aspx?TabID=1&Site=postportal&Lang=en-US&ItemID=10337&mid=10768 and here https://www.postcode.post.ir/_Geography/Documents/postal%20code.%20PDF.pdf)

Here (https://eservice.postcode.post.ir/) you can search for codes by entering the full address. However, we could not find a database of postal codes and corresponding address. No coordinates are shown in all cases.
