Does anyone have a source for a US State and City database?
Maybe this helps. I used the data files for some other projects..
Did you look at the name of the Executive Secretary on that page?
Being dyslexic, I immediately read "You Lost", which seemed ironic
for the USGS.
I know I asked in my post for US State and City database and did not
mention zip codes, but that was something I was after as well.
Strangely enough, the USGS states that it's the U.S. Census Bureau
who keeps the zip codes. But the U.S. Census Bureau says it's the US
Postal Service and the US Postal Service points to private
businesses such as:
I was almost certain that the UP Postal Service had something, but I
couldn't find it.
I'm not sure where I got my current database, but I think I'll just
stick with it and allow the client to get a subscription for an
update (if they want).
the US Postal Service does control the Zip Codes... The reason you
couldn't get anything out of them is they do not publicly sell or give
that data out to anyone except for a few private businesses who resell
it... One of the best/cheapest sources I've found for mailing lists
(it includes the actual delivery address plus the city, state, & zip)
Although it's not free nor exactly what you asked for they may be able
to point you in a better direction to get exactly what you want.
If you need any additional help let me know. My day job is working
directly with the post office and mailing lists :)
