Postcodes / Zipcodes map data
for Poland

Postcodes, or zipcodes, are an important tool for geographic planning in Poland. 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 Poland

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 Poland.

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

Situated in central Europe, the Republic of Poland is bordered by Russia, Lithuania, Germany, Ukraine, Belarus, Slovakia and Czechia. The capital city is Warsaw.
Poland is a representative democracy, and is divided into sixteen administrative provinces, called voivodeships. It has had periods of independence and well as turbulent times of domination by other countries. Poland was invaded by Nazi Germany during World War ll and millions of Poles were killed, around half of them Jewish. Infamously, a number of concentration camps were established in Poland. Post-war, the Soviets instituted a communist government, but the establishment of the Solidarity trade union in Gdansk in 1980, ensured that Poland was the birthplace of the Soviet bloc’s first recognised independent political movement. With free elections in 1989 and 1990, Poland achieved independence from Soviet Russia.
It is now a developed market economy and one of the most robust in Europe. It is also considered to be one of the world’s most dynamic economies. Most significant is the service sector, particularly banking and finance, with tourism a growing area. Industries include machine-building, ship-building and chemicals. Agriculture makes a lesser contribution to the economy, and the population has become more urbanised.
Poles are notoriously proud of their national identity and there is strong cultural heritage throughout art, architecture, music, literature and science and fashion. The Polish media and film scene is robust and lively. Fifteen of its sixteen UNESCO World Heritage sites are cultural.
On the world stage, Poland is a member of the United Nations, NATO and the European Union.

The power of postcodes

Postcodes, or zipcodes if you prefer, are a powerful tool for geographic visualisation and analysis in Poland. 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.
