Maps and data

Postcode map

Postal code areas in *.pdf format or a vector postal code in GIS format containing regions and zip code points to create a variety of geographic analyzes of data that is related to a region with the same zip code. The postal code is currently the most widespread geographic information in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and other countries. Therefore, it can be easily used to analyze customer databases that contain postal codes.

Usage
Vector map is used mostly in the following situations:
  • Geographical analysis - for example displaying the number of customers with company's turnover in each postal region.
  • Creation of sales representatives regions - postcode boundaries can be merged into bigger areas such as sales representatives territories with service zones. Various parameters can be observed during the process (number of customers, frequency of visits, turnover etc.).
Postcode map in PDF format:
  • Standard display on a monitor - background map for quick orientation directly on the computer monitor using free applications such as Adobe Acrobat DC etc.
  • Printed map - after printing it can be used as a wall map for drawing or quick orientation. Note: our company does not usually print this map. We encourage our customers to contact their local printing service suppliers.

Versions

Postcode map in PDF

Postcode areas are processed into *.pdf format in cartographic output, which you can see in the pictures below. There are postcode regions displayed on the background map. In addition to postal areas, maps also include regional borders, settlements, roads and other features. This processing is suitable for easy viewing in a pdf viewer such as Adobe Acrobat DC, but does not allow the user to zoom (zooming the map into street details for example). The user can print the map within the pdf browser and available printer/plotter options.

A map of the whole Czech Republic and Slovakia is available in this format with detailed views for Prague, Brno and Bratislava.

Note
If you are interested in a ZIP code map of individual regions, your defined specific area or if you need to add specific layers to the map (eg. your branches, customers, etc.), please contact us.

For MapInfo Viewer

In this case, postcode map is delivered to the user in the form of a MapInfo Workspace (map composition), where the ZIP code areas are located above the base map. User can open the entire workspace in application MapInfo Viewer which is free of charge.

The advantage of this option is that the user can zoom in and out on the map, use other tools such as Info (displaying attribute data for the selected object on the map), selection tools or the Statistics tool. Another big advantage is that we can add specific layers to the map composition in agreement with the client. (eg. own regions of sales representatives, branches, customers, etc.).

MapInfo Viewer
MapInfo Viewer is a free application that allows users to work with workspaces that have been prepared using the full version of MapInfo Pro. To install MapInfo Viewer, you must sign up for a free account with Pitney Bowes.
MapInfo Viewer allows you to open and view MapInfo Workspaces (.WOR) or individual layers in MapInfo (.TAB) format. Selected analytical functions such as quering, selections, viewing attribute data (Browser) or turning layers on and off are allowed. It is possible to print and export maps and reports to PDF. It is possible to display two different map views side by side and synchronize the movement in both windows. It is also possible to copy spreadsheet data into MS Excel in a simple way (Ctrl + C> Ctrl + V).
However, users can not edit the map (no editing tools) or save changes in created workspaces. If you need to use the complete analytical and editing tools for geographic analysis of your data, you can use postcode map in the professional GIS environment MapInfo Pro, which you can learn more about HERE, or you can contact us.
