From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Note that there is another boundary relation system with boundary=postal_code which is already in wide use.
Relation:postal_code
Status: Obsoleted (inactive)
Proposed by: Robx
Tagging: type=postal_code
Drafted on: 2008-07-02


This Relation could replace postal_code=* on ways. There should be one relation per postal code, grouping all streets with this postal code.

Notes

  • One might want to add other objects associated with the postal code to the relation, e.g., buildings. On the other hand, if they're already associated with a street in the relation, this isn't necessary.
  • If a street consists of several ways, you can add a Relation:street to the postal code relation instead of the separate ways.
