Abstract:

      In 1993, the Maryland Department of Planning and the Maryland State Highway Administration

            entered into a Data Base Usage Agreement with Bell Atlantic and Data Chromatics, Inc. to

            develop an enhanced street address map for Maryland.  Zip Code boundary area files were one

            of the products derived from this partnership. The resulting boundary area files were

            intended to improve the cartographic quality and accuracy of the zip code boundary area

            files derived from the U.S. Census Bureau's post 1990 Census TIGER\Line Files (based on the

            Census Bureau’s zip code tabulation areas, ZCTAs).  Subsequent iterative improvements to the

            Zip Code boundary area files have been made using premise address information associated

            with mapped parcel records as provided in the Maryland Department of Planning’s MdProperty

            View GIS tax map and parcel record DVD product. 

 

            The resulting files are meant to serve as a "good approximation” of zip codes as polygons

            (which in reality they are not) but are not official Zip Code maps and are not meant to be a

            substitute for any products offered by the U.S. Postal Service, the official source for zip

            code information. While there are no restrictions on their use we do recommend that they are

            best used with MdProperty View and that MDP makes no guarantee or warranty regarding the

            files.

 

            Zip Code information is provided on a County-wide basis.  County based files are extracted from

a statewide dataset. Polygons representing the full extent of the ZIP code are provided.  MDP also

has available a statewide ZIP code file that is available upon request or via direct download from

the MDP website.
