Postcodes / Zipcodes map data

Postcodes, or zipcodes, are an important tool for geographic planning in Malta. Originally developed to streamline postal delivery, postcodes are now commonly referred to as “the new geography”. They have evolved to become an integral part of the business planning process.

Postcodes / Zipcodes map data for Malta

Postcodes are a simple but convenient way to locate customers, assets, competitors – in fact, anything with an address. Enriching your address data with coordinates is a process known as geocoding and is the first step in adding location intelligence to your data assets located in Malta.

Postcode centroids (centre points) are suitable for coarse-level searches and geocoding, while postcode regions (polygons) can be highly effective for visualisation purposes.

We provide 3-digit Postcodes map data for Malta, as both centroids and regions, with seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries. The data is available in all common GIS data formats.

Avg Population for 3-digit Postcodes
Situated south of Sicily and east of Tunisia, the Republic of Malta is a series of islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Malta, Gozo and Comino are the only three inhabited islands of the Maltese archipelago. In terms of area, Malta is the tenth smallest country in the world. The capital city, Valletta, is the smallest capital in the European Union.
Malta’s strategic position in the Mediterranean has been significant. It has been occupied and contested by a number of sea-faring nations including the Phoenicians, Romans, Greeks, French and British.
In 1964, Malta was granted independence from the United Kingdom, but remains within the Commonwealth. It is a republic with a parliamentary system based upon the British system. Divided into five regions, the vast majority of the population (as much as 95%) lives in the urbanised areas of Valletta and Gozo. The population is an ageing one, compounded by the fact that Malta is a popular retirement destination.
Malta’s position as a trading post remains current today and it is a leading European centre for container shipping. Tourism is the largest part of its economy.
With so many significant and diverse historical influences, the culture of Malta is strong in music, art and architecture through to its festivals and cuisine.
It is a member of the United Nations and the European Union.

The power of postcodes

Postcodes, or zipcodes if you prefer, are a powerful tool for geographic visualisation and analysis in Malta. While primarily designed to help deliver the mail, their standardised nature makes them useful for locating assets. Given a reference data set of postcodes with coordinates, it is possible to take a database of addresses (say, customers) and use the postcode as a common link or join. This allows the address database to be enriched by coordinates – a process known as geocoding. While these coordinates are only approximate (the centroid or centre point of each postcode), they allow the addresses to now be placed on a map where geographic patterns, such as clusters, may be revealed.

Postcode regions are polygon shapes which capture all addresses with a same postcode. They are often irregular shapes and sometimes feature holes and enclaves. Despite this, it is possible to use GIS or mapping software to assign colour to these regions to form a thematic map, also known as a choropleth map. While some care is usually required to ensure that the visualisation is statistically valid, thematic maps are visually powerful and a great way to communicate a variable across a geographic area.
