Postcodes / Zipcodes Map Data

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

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 Kosovo.

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

The Republic of Kosovo is a partially recognised defacto state in south-eastern Europe. In the heart of the Balkans and landlocked, Kosovo is bordered by Serbia, North Macedonia, Albania and Montenegro. The capital city is Pristina.
Kosovo’s past has been chequered; it is a province which has moved between empires over centuries. In the late nineteenth century, Kosovo was at the centre of the Albanian National Movement and was ceded by the Ottomans to Serbia and Montenegro after the Balkan War. Post WWI, both Serbia and Montenegro became part of Yugoslavia. After WWII, Yugoslavia established the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija, within Serbia. Tensions were rumbling between Kosovo’s Albanian and Serb population for years, at times violently. After the dissolution of Yugoslavia, these tensions became more acute and culminated in the Kosovan War 1998-99. This resulted in the arrival of the UN Interim Administrative Mission in Kosovo. In 2008, Kosovo declared independence from Serbia. Kosovo was recognised with diplomatic status as a sovereign state by 97 member states of the United Nations. Serbia does not recognise Kosovo as an independent state.
Kosovo is now a multi-party parliamentary representative democracy and is divided into seven districts which are further divided into 38 municipalities. It is a secular state. Ethnically diverse, the two largest groups are Albanians and Serbs. The official languages are Albanian and Serbian with institutions committed to recognising each equally.
With years of turmoil in its wake, the Kosovan economy is a developing one. Its arable sector is very strong and it is an established wine producer, exporting to Germany and the USA. The production of electricity is seen as the industrial sector with the most potential. Kosovo has significant deposits of metals and minerals. Although not a developed sector, with its rich topography, Kosovo does have tourist potential as an all-season destination.
Much of the architectural heritage of Kosovo, both Byzantine in style and vernacular, was destroyed during the war. Its art is relatively unknown but is beginning to gain exposure. Music is diverse and authentic Albanian and Serb music is still played, as well as influences on the modern music scene. Sport is a very important part of Kosovan culture. The movie scene is being reinvigorated and Kosovo hosts film festivals.
Kosovo is a member of the IMF, The World Bank and has applied for membership of Interpol.

The Power of Postcodes

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