Canadian FSA / Forward Sortation Area Boundaries
The Canadian FSA / Forward Sortation Area Boundaries File contains the geographic polygon boundary for Canada's Forward Sortation Areas (FSAs). FSA boundary files allow you to analyze your data at the FSA level of geography. All postal codes in Canada coorespond or lie within a larger FSA Boundary. The first three characters of the postal code represent the Forward Sortation Area they belong to. FSAs are delineated / determined based on volume of mail.The first letter of the FSA indicates a province, territory or other major Postal Sector of mailing. The second letter of the Postal Code indicates whether the address falls in a rural or urban area. In Canada there are over 1,637 FSAs. The FSA file is updated on an annual basis. Data File Variables: FSA Name Identifier, Distribution Centre Name, Latitude / Longitude Coordinate and Province Code.

US 5-Digit Zip Codes
The TeleAtlas Dynamap 5-Digit ZIP Codes database includes the most current cartographic information available on US Postal Service 5-Digit ZIP Codes. The ZIP Code product contains the ZIP Codes for the U.S. For each state including D.C. there is a ZIP Code table that contains all unique boundary and point ZIP Codes for that state.

Key Benefits: Only one ZIP table is necessary for geocoding. This eliminates the confusion over geocoding with the boundary or point tables. Geocoding is faster with a higher expected hit rate. The smaller size of ZIP Code files and unique ZIP Codes speed the geocoding process. The combined boundary and point table supports thematic mapping for area shading as well as point thematic mapping. The inclusion of a Residential PO category that identifies large apartment buildings and college dorms that have unique ZIP Codes, allows for correctly located geocoded points within an enclosing ZIP Code boundary.

    ZIP Codes may be known by more than one Post Office (PO) name. For instance ZIP Code 12204 is known as Albany, NY and Menands, NY. Because of this, each state will include a Post Office Names table associated with each ZIP Code that has multiple Post Office names for identification. A category called Residential PO is also included consisting of PO Box ZIP Codes (usually point ZIPs) that are predominantly residential in nature such as apartment buildings and college dormitories. This allows for more accurate point dispersion when geocoding and more representative thematic mapping. Quarterly and semi-annual updates are available.
