Zip Code Finder and County Maps with Labels

With ZeeMaps, you can build Zip Code Finder or County maps, by highlighting certain Zip Codes (in the US) and counties (in US, France and UK).

You can style the highlighted area by picking the color and opacity of for the region, and the size, color and opacity of the boundary. With a recent upgrade, the regions will now be automatically labeled with their number or name on your Zip Code Finder or County map. The labels should help in easily identifying the county or zip code.

For example, the following map shows a zip code finder map for Los Angeles, with Beverly Hills (90210) highlighted. (For more information on highlighting regions, please see our Help section.)

To avoid cluttering of the map, the labels will show only at higher zoom levels.

There is a limit of 175 regions for the labeling. If your map has more than 175 regions, then they will not be labeled. We restrict the number of labels to ensure that the map is displayed in reasonable time. Let us know if you’d like to see maps with larger number of regions labeled.

If you do not want the labels, you can turn them off using the Map -> Settings page and then the option for “Do not label regions, e.g., US Zip Codes or Counties” in the “Map Display” section.
