Current Zip Codes

    ​Hi there,

    As we stay steady on the road to better data viz tools, we are doing some cool stuff with maps.  However, it's hard to keep some tables updated to reflect current zip codes.

    Is this still the best tool avail, or is there another option?

    Hi Melissa,

    Can you say a bit more about how you use the zip codes? This is an interesting question as one would think there would be a good free option, but it is hard to say without knowing more about your system's requirements. Is it just a table of cities with zip codes linked? Do you need zip codes connected to shapefiles for mapping or any special software, latitude, longitude, etc.?

    The one you linked to seems to come with a heck of a lot of stuff!
