Precisely tailored area divisions

The right classification level for every application.

Depending on the purpose of use, area boundaries are suitable on an administrative level, according to postal areas, or based on comparable areas that have been determined statistically, for example.

Benefit from the wide range of different area boundaries offered by PTV, which you can combine with a variety of other data that we provide, such as street networks or demographic data. “Classic” area boundaries using postcodes or administrative areas are available worldwide, while most statistical area divisions are offered on a country-specific basis.

This makes them the ideal support for company-specific tasks ranging from sales territory planning to the visualization of sales figures.

PTV Admin Boundaries

For a clear and informative map representation of regional connections and relationships, the administrative boundaries are often crucial. The most commonly used are political administrative boundaries such as state, district, county or municipal boundaries. These administrative boundaries are distinctive in their division, allocation and designation in each country.

The boundaries of administrative units for each application are available for all countries worldwide with PTV Admin Boundaries.

PTV PLZ8 Germany

PTV PLZ8 Germany is a small-scale division of areas into mutually comparable sections. This enables us to offer a breakdown of areas which is not only more small-scale than the official postcode areas, but also much more homogeneous due to the grouping of approximately 500 households in each area.

For many small-scale observations in marketing, planning and structuring tasks, but also for the distribution of advertising materials, they are much more suitable than the official postal areas, which are less finely structured and often not comparable with one another. They are particularly popular in address-based geomarketing and in the visualization of sales planning and sales territories.

PTV Postcode Boundaries

For effective location planning and successful sales management, postal boundaries are often crucial. The five-digit postcode boundaries are therefore among the most widely used area boundaries. PTV Postcode Boundaries contains them for the whole of Europe and for many other countries.

Like the administrative boundaries, the PTV Postcode Boundaries can also be enhanced with a wide range of demographic data from the PTV range.

KGS14PLZ

The KGS14PLZ data set combines the official and the postal structures and adds a finely detailed level with a comparable number of households.

A uniform finely detailed area structure has been created with the combination of district-municipality key and postcode being divided into homogeneous areas with an average of 400 households. With more than 100,000 area units in Germany, the area key is finely detailed, while still being easy to handle.
