Postcodes / Zipcodes map data

Postcodes / Zipcodes map data for Türkiye

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 Türkiye.

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 Türkiye, as both centroids and regions, with seamless transitions across borders with neighbouring countries. The data is available in all common GIS data formats.

The trans-continental Republic of Turkey, straddles south-eastern Europe and western Asia, the division being the Bosphorus, Sea of Marmara and the Dardenelles. It borders Greece, Bulgaria, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, Iraq and Syria. Whilst the capital is Ankara, the largest city is Istanbul which holds the unique position as the only pan-continental city in the world.
Over the centuries, Turkey’s geographical position has given it strategic significance, as well as control over the entrance to the Black Sea. Turkey was the centre of the Ottoman Empire until the establishment of the secular republic in 1920s, by Kemal Ataturk.
Since 2018, Turkey has been a presidential republic, divided into 81 provinces. It operates on a multi-party system and is a secular state with no specific religion. It has undergone some upheaval since the 1920s, and progress towards democracy and economic development was often halted. The population as a whole is very heavily urbanised. One fifth of Turkey’s population is made up of Kurdish peoples.
Turkey’s economy and regional power is driven largely by industry and the service sector, although agriculture accounts for a significant portion of the labour force. Industry comprises areas such as the automotive, textiles, electronics and mining. Within the service sector, tourism has grown consistently over the years and Turkey is now in the top ten most-visited countries.
Turkish culture is very diverse and a true marrying of Greco-Roman, Islamic, Ottoman, Anatolian and Western influences. There are 18 UNESCO world heritage sites in Turkey. From painting and carpet weaving, through to music, literature, theatre and architecture, Turkey has made its mark on the world and continues to do so.
It is a member of the United Nations, NATO and is a candidate for membership of the European Union.

The power of postcodes

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