Adding more information to postcode geography

Adding information to postcode geography, including Census data or business activity data.

Your own data can be mapped using one of our postcode data products, all that is required is that you supply us with a database table(s) or spreadsheet(s) containing postcode value in one column – separate row for each postcode value*, ideally a State / Territory abbreviation in a second column, and whatever variables you want mapped in third and subsequent columns. We’ve prepared a sample of an ideal spreadsheet format for mapping, you can download a copy here. However for many applications, our pre-configured Census data enhanced postcode range may be all that is required, with almost 300 of the most commonly deployed demographic statistics from the most recent Census. For a modest additional charge compared to the standard product range, it is incredibly good value! Other published data can also be deployed, such as the most recent statistics for business activity and distribution.

*Please note that PO Boxes and other none postcode area values cannot be matched and mapped directly. If your list includes such values, the default settings will ignore them. If you have actual data values attached which you wish to honor – e.g sales figures for clients who only have a PO Box address – please duplicate your postcode column and edit such PO Box and other none postcode entries with their relevant containing postcode area values, e.g. postcode 2001 = “Sydney PO Boxes”, this should be edited to the containing postcode area for Sydney = 2000 etc. If you need to reference the Australia Post list it can be found here (you may need to pay if the free PDF version does not meet your needs).
