ZIPScribble Map France

“Allons enfants de la patrie…!”

But before we get to that, as explained earlier, there are different levels in my ZIPScribble Maps:

  • Level 1 ZIPScribble Map: Only the first digit of the postcode is compared. Thus, a discontinuity is detected, for example, between postal codes 8679 and 9000, but no discontinuity is detected between 8399 and 8400.
  • Level 2 ZIPScribble Map: The first two digits are compared. Thus, a discontinuity is detected between postal codes 8679 and 9000 as well as between 8399 and 8400.
  • The Level 3 ZIPScribble Map works analogously.

Find below Levels 1 through 3 of the ZIPScribble Map of France:

ZIPScribble Map France Level 1

How tidy everything looks: All the postcode regions are neatly tucked into individual départements! By the way: You may notice that Corse is there in the Mediterranean but that any overseas territories have been left out.

ZIPScribble Map France Level 2

On this level, Paris jumps out as a very colourful spot in the northern part of France!

ZIPScribble Map France Level 3

On level 3, things become a bit chaotic. However, the cities of Lyon (near the southwestern tip of Switzerland) and Marseille (on the Mediterranean coast) stand out pretty well.

Also behold the patriotic renditions in the colours of the Tricolore:
