Postcodes

Postcode mapping is widely used for business analysis. This is a key instrument for mapping and analysing customers, the commercial environment and suppliers in terms of their spatial relationships. It also has major implications for lifestyle analysis in terms of wealth, education, health and other aspects of the environment.

One can produce thematically shaded maps, or simply search within boundaries to identify spatial trends in business and consumer demographics, marketing response rates, sales territories, school catchments and similar.

Postcode products for Bulgaria (BG-PostMap) developed by Geo Strategies cover both National and Street level.

There are two types of PostMap products available for Bulgaria: Centroids and Boundaries. In turn, the Boundary products are available at two different resolutions: High Resolution and Low Resolution. High Resolution boundaries are for the most demanding of applications. Low Resolution boundaries are intended for use with thematic mapping, the creation of large territories (e.g. Sales territories), or other applications where positional accuracy is less important.
