ZIP CODE LOCATOR The zip locator is a quick and easy way to locate any zip in the U.S. This also helps to provide a base map for your map because going through the wizard you have the option of adding the zip information as a shape file layer. To begin click on the find tab and choose zip locator. Clicking on the zip Locator icon will bring up the first page of the wizard. Enter in the zip code you are looking for in the space provided. Click next to continue. The next page will presents the results of the search. If multiple results were displayed, you can unselect the undesired zip codes by un-checking the box next to the zip code. You can also select or unselect all of the zip codes displayed by right clicking. When finished click next to advance to the last page of the wizard. At the last window of the zip locator wizard, you are asked whether you would like to add the locator data to the map or select features. Selecting add locators to map will add a shape file containing county information for the U.S. You will also be zoomed into the county that matched your search. Once you have gone through the zip locator and the shape file associated with it is already added to your map, then the next time you need to locate a zip code you can choose the select features option. All that choosing this option will do is select the feature that matches the search you provided. The feature that is highlighted in the picture above, is the county that matched the search I provided in the zip locator.
