addressing system. Mukim of Kangar, Perlis was selected to conduct this study which
is involving a development of a new coding model to generate a new postal code
system of this particular area. Various data such as state, district, mukim and road
data have been collected together with coding model parameters which is derived
from extensive literature review from postal code of other countries. By using
geocoding method, all these data will be processed using ArcGIS software. The
outcome of the study is proposed the postal code for mailing address.. The proposed
coding model is able to generate new postal code and assist user to find a location
based on postal code. This result shows the suitability of coding model to the pilot
study area, Kangar, Perlis.In conclusion, the enhancement in postal code is crucial for
the development of addressing system and mailing delivery. Development of
