Using the Locate
by Postal/ZIP Code Tool
Often you may have customer data that contains
ZIP/Postal codes without addresses. One way you can use your data
with Maptitude is to locate your data on a map by
creating a new layer that contains a point for every
record in your table. In this case you could use the
Locate by Postal/ZIP Code command
to locate your data.
following steps illustrate how to use the different
settings available to locate your postal data:
a table of the records that you want to locate, or
choose a working map layer that has unfound
Choose Tools-Locate-Locate by Postal/ZIP
Choose whether to locate all records or a selection
set filter (such as "Address Not Found").
Choose a field that has unique IDs for each record.
Choose the field that contains the ZIP/Postal Codes.
If the ZIP/Postal Code field contains more than just
the postal code (for example, street address and
postal code, or city, state, and postal code),
Maptitude will pick out the postal code
automatically and ignore the rest of the
Choose how to place the records. You can choose to
place each record centered at or around the matching
post office/point location, or to locate each record
scattered within the corresponding postal area. Keep
in mind the following:
database has records that share a common postal
code, spreading them out lets you see each
individual point on the map.
If your selection is a filter on P.O. Box
locations, centering them will place your
records at the corresponding postal point
If you choose to locate records centered or
scattered around the Postal/ZIP Code point, you will typically get a
higher match rate because there are more
points than areas due to PO
Boxes and unique postal codes for certain
businesses and other facilities such as colleges
and military bases.
Click OK. If Maptitude displays the
Save As dialog box, type a file
name for the layer to store the new points, and
Maptitude locates the records and displays a message
summarizing the results. Maptitude also displays the
locations in a point layer on a map, and creates a new
selection set filter called "Postal/ZIP Codes Not Found" for any
records that could not be located. If you used the
Scattered Evenly inside the area
option, you can repeat the
above steps and choose one of the other methods to locate
the additional Postal/ZIP Codes.
