zipdecode – ben fry

Posted by shannonclark on January 25, 2004

zipdecode – ben fry (from BoingBoing) very cool applet that lets you type in a zipcode in parts and see where it is graphically.

Cool because it is a completely intuative, yet powerful, user interface and information presentation design that elegantly and effectively communicates a lot of useful information.

For example, you can put in a part of a zip code, and immediately know where (roughly) the zip code is in the county, as you go, you can then see down to the specific town (for codes that exist).

All in all, very cool and fun.
