Answer a few quick questions about your business and your intended use so we can help you determine if the data is a good fit for your use case.

ZIP+4 Centroids

The ZIP+4 Centroids dataset identifies more than 60 million deliverable USPS ZIP+4s and correlates this information to US Census Block data. Because ZIP+4 Codes represent small areas, they can more accurately identify latitude and longitude coordinates regardless of misspelled street names or scrambled street numbers. ZIP+4 Centroids is the most accurate ZIP Code data product we sell.

Benefits

  • Provides address matching to complement StreetPro™
  • Creates dot density maps that illustrate market locations
  • Allows use of ZIP+4 Centroids to overlay maps created from other databases
  • Helps businesses analyze spatial relationships between current business locations, customers and competitors
  • Facilitates territory definition
  • Enables direct mail targeting at the ZIP+4 level

Carrier Routes

US Carrier Routes represent the area served by a particular USPS mail carrier. Boundaries follow roads for accuracy and visual appeal. A proprietary process captures residential and business routes, creating a great resource for direct marketers.

A single record is created for each carrier route feature, regardless of the number of polygons that constitute it. Such “split routes” still contain all the necessary information to draw each polygon. The centroid file for split routes uses the gravity center point of the carrier route to ensure that that the centroid resides within one of the Carrier Route polygons.

Benefits

  • Multiple data feeds, including USPS data, make this our most complete dataset of its kind.
  • CASS certifiable data is imported each month.
  • ZIP+4 data is rigorously linked to every US street segment.
  • Segments are scored based on match rates.
  • Areas are incorporated cleanly without jagged fence-posting.
