What's included? Digital map boundaries show the area enclosing each specific postcode or administrative unit. This GIS boundary map data is available at many levels from country borders to individual postcodes or TV areas. Most products in this category are closed polygons, although some very detailed products are line features. Boundary data products are supplied in your chosen GIS or spatial data format.
How is it used? Digital map boundaries are used to create thematic (shaded) maps showing trends and identifying gaps or hot spots. Boundary polygons add context to the map, so the user can immediately see which country or county is being shown. GIS format boundaries can also be used to group information and balance territory boundaries, e.g. allocating postcode sectors to particular sales representatives.
