Precise gazetteer files are essential for numerous applications from cartographical display to route calculation and location planning or area sales management. Particularly for pan-European organisations and international projects DDS exclusively provides a powerful dataset:
ORTSDATEI EUROPA represents an expedient addition to the customary Germany and Europe gazetteers for many applications.
ORTSDATEI EUROPA includes 47 countries in Europe and contains, depending on country, between 10,000 and 100,000+ additional postal codes, particularly for Eastern Europe.
Cities, towns and districts are generally represented as the focus of the built-up area. In addition to location identifier the gazetteer contains postal code, place / district name, size category, a statistical number and coordinates of the midpoint.
