A database of postcodes/zipcodes and the corresponding spatial locations in terms of a latitude and a longitude (or similar coordinates in an openly published coordinate system). The data has to be available for the entire country. See our methodology section for more information.

There is a relevant dataset available from swisstopo, the Official index of cities and towns including postal codes and perimeter. However, it is not fully compliant with the requirements of the Global Open Data Index 2016, as the dataset does not contain address.
We acknowledge and thank Oleg Lavrovsky for his valuable contribution to the Global Open Data Index.
