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



I can't confirm the existence for Location Datasets because there are no dedicated department(s) nor ministry that focuses storing a database for postcodes/zipcodes in Timor-Leste. However, there are some generic information about districts in Timor-Leste from the official website Ministry of State Administration http://www.estatal.gov.tl/English/Municipal/Municipal_main.html but that doesn't meet the above criteria.

Reviewer comments

Apparently Timor-Leste does not use postal codes. The administrative boundaries can be downloaded from Global Administrative Areas [http://www.gadm.org/download] up to subdistrict level. The smallest political division is the village (suco). License: "This dataset is freely available for academic use and other non-commercial use.
