Post English post codes 
I would really like to add English, Canadian and Australian postal codes.
For the US I found postal codes that translate from the zip code to a longitude and latitude.
Then I found weather station data that was freely available the had the locations of weather stations and the probability of last frost date.
If I can find the same for other countries, I have all the code in place to handle them.

Since this is now a requested feature, I will start looking around a bit more and see what I can do to find the datasources needed.

Thanks,
Roy

Post Zip codes 
Am not sure whether this is the correct way of commenting on this issue, nevertheless, here goes:
Although my request relates to Australia (ie. Australian postcodes), I would also be in favour of seeing an upgrade to incorporate zip codes from other countries.
I note that the last request was over a year ago - can we look forward to seeing a response sometime soon? Very Happy

Post Thanks for keeping me honest 
Hi yilgiddie,

I appreciate people using the forum to communicate issues.
Yes, it has been a long time. For the US it was easy to find the databases that I needed and they were free of charge.
For the UK I did some searching but initally came up with nothing and got distracted.

As I searched again today, I found at least some form of weather database for the UK and the organization in Australia that might be able to help. I will get back to getting this data for you.

It also appears that Google maps API will return longitude and latitude for postal codes. I had some success with the UK and 100% success with Australia by adding AU to the 4 digit post code.

I will try to squeeze this in as I am working on other things. There has been a HUGE surge in users from both UK and Australia, and it makes me happy to see international support of my project.

Thanks again. Roy
