CivicSpace-zipcodes.csv
-----------------------

http://www.boutell.com/zipcodes/

Note that this database cannot be used as a database of cities. For any zip code, it will tell you one location for that zip code. However, a zip code may be shared. E.g. 55025 is for Columbus MN and Forest Lake MN, only Forest Lake is in the spreadsheet.

(currently mostly unused by ocPortal code - but useful in algorithms for relating postcodes to counties, and finding distances, etc)
