As many of you know, in Metro Atlanta, the location of zip codes often causes a lot of confusion. For example, "Why does a lot of East Gwinnett have Hoschton or Bethlehem addresses???"; "You live in East Cobb, but have a Roswell address???", etc., etc.

Well, here is a cool map link that shows Zip Code Boundaries for the entire U.S. (a google map application). Just click on the Atlanta area--make sure the map is set to "ZIP Hybrid" in order to best understand metro zip codes and their locations.


I hope this helps many and brings clarity. (Many will now understand why people in four different counties have Acworth addresses, the "Suwanee in South Forsyth" phenomenon, why saying "in Marietta" or "in Decatur" can mean a lot of different things, etc...!)


Enjoy!

That looks really similar to this one which has been mentioned on C-D before.

Oops. I had no idea it was posted before (I've never seen it).

My bad. Sorry for duplication.

No, no... Don't apologize. It's a good resource. I bookmarked it long ago, but it might not have been the Atlanta or Georgia forums where I saw it posted.

The two aren't precisely the same, anyway. Same maps, but the outside part is slightly different. That's why I thought it was weird.

I am enjoying the map (is it just me or does Iowa look especially funky?) but I wonder if anyone knows about a map that would simply chart the areas with a zip code starting in 0, 1, 2, and so on? Thanks!
