    Default Isle Of Man locations

    I've just been having at look at the Isle Of Man and all the pubs in e.g. Castletown, Port Erin & Port St. Mary are all in one blob just outside Castletown.

    Is there a problem with post codes in the IOM?

    I take it you are on about the maps.

    If so the process of getting a coordinate from a postcode is Geocoding, in the UK that information is handled by Ordnance Survey (now, used to be an expensive service by RM that we avoided with Googles help). IOM has not equivalent as far as we can tell (certainly not a free one as well).

    That's going to make it difficult then.

    I'll have a go correcting the map points with some of the places I know and see how it looks.
