Postcode maps describe areas sharing the same postcode.

The majority of the world's countries have a postcode system for simplifying and accelerating mail delivery. Postcodes thus usually describe a geographically confined area.

The postcode system covers all areas of a country, meaning every location in that country is assigned to a single postcode.

In almost all cases, postcodes form a hierarchical system, meaning that the first one, two or three digits of the full postcode describe a broader division into postcode regions, while the latter digits define more detailed sub-divisions of these regions.
