Proc Geocode for zipcodes in the Netherlands

[ Edited ]

Hi All, 

 

I would like to make a simple map where I would color-code zipcodes (4 digits) areas within the Netherlands based on predefined variable.

 

I believe that I should be using proc geocode, but I don't know where to find the maps/zipcode data for the Netherlands. Could someone please suggest a source?

 

Thanks,

Re: Proc Geocode for zipcodes in the Netherlands

There are a number of free sources you can find doing a simple Google search. e.g.: https://www.aggdata.com/free/netherlands-postal-codes

 

My experience has been that you can add these to the sashelp.zipcode file, regardless of whether the codes are numeric or character, and that the mapping and distance procs and formulas work correctly.
