Is there a source (free or paid) for polygons of border coordinates for spanish postcodes? Google show this borders in google maps, but doesn't provide them.

I would look at the spanish national survey / statistical authority of spain / institute for geodesy/ ..., but I am not familiar with the spanish government structure. –  til_b Apr 4 '13 at 11:18
    
Thank you for the suggestion til_b, but I did search in the INE (National Institute for Statistics) and IGN (National Institute for Geography) websites and didn't find this information. –  jmm Apr 5 '13 at 8:18

The WMS at http://www.cartociudad.es/wms/CARTOCIUDAD/CARTOCIUDAD?Request=GetCapabilities provides a layer called "CodigoPostal", which seems to contain postcodes. As far as i can see the layer is queryable.

I found this WMS by searching with google for "código postal España inurl:wms".

I don't know enough spanish to decide whether this service is free/legal/illegal to use.

The capabilities state

<Fees>no conditions apply</Fees>
<AccessConstraints>OtherConstraints. Se permite cualquier uso si se menciona la autoría del IGN del siguiente modo: «© Instituto Geográfico Nacional de España»</AccessConstraints>

Thank you, til_b, I'm very busy right now with other project issues, but I'll have a look as soon as posible. –  jmm Apr 8 '13 at 13:35

"AccessContraints" means "All uses allowed if authoring by IGN is mentioned as <<© Instituto Geográfico Nacional de España>>" –  jmm Apr 8 '13 at 13:37
