about Posttude

Posttude is a new postal code system that incorporates the properties of Latitude and Longitude.

Posttude provides a fixed-grid system that partitions countries, cities, and towns for addressing and mail delivery.

Posttude partitioned the Earth into grids of fixed areas using Latitude and Longitude.

Here we can see an area on Earth being partitioned into the Posttude grid. This particular Posttude is referenced as ### 27192. This is called a Level-0 Posttude. (The Posttude numbers are precisely derived from Latitude and Longitude.)

The Latitude, Longitude, and physical dimensions of the Posttude are shown as well.

This area bounded by ### 27192 can further be sub-partitioned. And here we show part of the sub-partitions.

We can see a particular sub-partition Posttude referenced as ### 27192.3658. This is called a Level-1 Posttude. A sub-partition Posttude is always prefixed with its enclosing partition.

This area bounded by ### 27192.3658 can yet again be further sub-partitioned. And here we show part of the sub-partitions.

We can see a particular sub-partition Posttude referenced as ### 27192.3658.1415. This is called a Level-2 Posttude.

Posttude Level-2 referenced an area of approximately 10m x 10m. Which is precise enough to identify a mail delivery end-point.
