Analyzing Your Postcode District Map

The United Kingdom uses postcodes for several reasons—and it is no longer limited to mail sorting. Over the years, postcodes have been used in different areas, including:
  • Aiding in census enumeration
  • Assigning destinations in route planning software
  • Determining insurance premiums
The postcode district refers to the outward code. It is the postcode area plus one or two numerical digits. Thus, “W1A”, “RH1”, and “SE1P” are some examples of postcode districts. Using Mapline, you can easily create a territory map of UK postcode districts like these. Simply download your map from Mapline, overlay your Excel data, and perform district-level analyses on UK postcode boundaries. Whether you’re pitching a presentation, looking for patterns, or arming your sales and marketing team with geographic insights, Mapline’s powerful mapping tools take your analyses to the next level.
