When you work with a map view, you can select location attributes to display on the map, including zip code boundaries and labels.

Most zip codes are assigned to relatively large geographical areas. However, some large institutions have their own zip codes. These show up on the map as a dot rather than a bounded area.

In the map shown in the following image, the dot identifies zip code 98195, which is for the University of Washington. The other zip codes in the area show standard boundaries.
