I’ve been a big fan of Ben Fry’s Zipdecode for ages. Here’s another way of visualizing the order of Zip codes: they go around the color wheel continuously from cyan through blue, purple, red, orange, yellow, green, and to cyan again.
This is a polar projection on the geographic center of the US. I’ve included Alaska and Hawaii but not Puerto Rico or the South Pacific. The Zip code database is not perfect: my hometown’s tiny post office, for example, is assigned the same latitude and longitude as several others in the same county. But the general order shows up clearly enough.
