Improvement to Zip Code Maps

We've added a minor improvement to our zip code maps at:
maps.huge.info/zip.htm and
www.usnaviguide.com/zip.htm

There is now an address search box which will help locate zip codes. Before, the zip code field was the only search besides clicking on the map, now an address, partial address, city and state, state or even a coordinate in latitude,longitude (like 34,-90 for instance) can be used to search out a zip code. A zip code can be used in the address field as well, but since this is using Google's geocoder, inaccuracies may be encountered by doing this. The best zip code results will be found using our system, which relies on the zip code field.

Additionally, instructions have been added to assist those not familiar with our maps. These instructions are fairly basic but are a lot more than was there before.

Please let us know if any problems are found with the new functionality. It's because of feedback from our users that we added this, so your input is very important.

Added Features to Zipcolors system

We added a new feature today on the Zipcolors system that now will show "point" zip codes as well as those that can be depicted as an area. These will show at the bottom of the list in the sidebar without a link and text saying '(point)' to the right of the zip code.

We've also added a button to the page that allows clearing of the polygon and markers from the page without removing or affecting the zip codes selected. This option will make the display clearer and cleaner.

Updated Zip Code Sites

We've updated both our zip code inquiry sites to use the latest version, 01/2009

maps.huge.info/zip.htm

and

www.usnaviguide.com/zip.htm

This is our current and most up to date data.

New Version of Zip Code Boundary Map

We've released a new version of our popular zip code map on a new domain:

ZipMap.net

This version centers and zooms to show the entire zip code when one is selected. We'll be testing this version in the coming weeks and will most likely add the same enhancement to our other zip code offerings.

Household Demographics Added

We've added 2008 household counts to the zip code display page at:

http://maps.huge.info/zip.htm

To see these demographics, just key in a zip code, address or click on the map. The counts for 2008 households will be displayed in the sidebar where the area codes used to be. The area codes are still available, just click on the marker or the link in the sidebar to open the infowindow which will have the area code as well as the household counts for the 2000 Census.

These counts were derived by determining the blocks that lie in each zip code, calculating the change in population from the 2008 estimates from the Census by county, extrapolating the household counts for 2008 from that data and summing by block for each zip code.

Demographics Added to Zipcolors App

Demographics have been added to the application at this link:

http://maps.huge.info/zipcolors.htm

Census 2000 household and estimated 2008 household counts have been added to the mapping display, totals on the sidebar and individual zip code counts when the hot point on the map is clicked.

New Product: Household Counts by Zip Code

We've added a new product to our ever increasing lineup:

"2000 Household and estimated 2008 Household counts by USPS Zip Code"

These demographics tie directly in with our USPS Zip Code Polygon Database and are available for a license fee of $500 with the purchase of our 01/2009 version of the polygon database.

The data is also integrated with our Zip Code Inquiry and our Zipcolors applications which are free to use online.
