LincMad Telephone Area Codes & Splits

LincMad's 2014 area code map with time zones, splitmap.png, registered copyright 2005 - 2014

Now with Time Zones!

The map now shows time zones! From the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November each year — for example, from 2014‑03‑09 to 2014‑11‑02 — most areas observe Daylight Saving Time, moving clocks forward one hour. The clock for each time zone indicates Standard Time first and then Daylight Saving Time. However, some areas do not observe DST: Hawaii, Arizona (except the Navajo Nation), part of British Columbia, most of Saskatchewan, small parts of Ontario and Québec, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. These areas observe Standard Time year-round, and so are displayed with only one time on the clock. (Note that the entire state of Indiana now does observe DST.) Note also that the Aleutian Islands in extreme southwestern Alaska are in the Hawaii-Aleutian Time Zone (2:00•3:00), and a small portion of Nunavut in northern Canada is in Eastern Standard Time year-round (7:00). To convert to international notation, subtract 12 hours from the time indicated on the map; for example, Pacific Time is shown as 4:00•5:00, corresponding to UTC–08:00 in winter and UTC–07:00 in summer.

The "Locator" page (en français, en español) lists the principal time zone and major cities for each area code, and is also the quickest way to answer the question "Where is area code ###?"

Area Code Overlays

Due to the increasing use of overlays, the map now shows only the first area code in an overlay area, with a plus sign to indicate a current or planned overlay. The last two concentrated overlays, in Oregon and British Columbia, have been "unconcentrated," expanding to cover the entirety of the original area codes. Additionally, area code 778 in B.C. now overlays both 604 and 250, covering the entire province; the 236 overlay code was added province-wide on 2013‑06‑01. Area code 306, which serves the entire province of Saskatchewan, was overlaid with a new area code, 639, on 2013‑05‑25. On 2013‑03‑25, the Toronto area received two new overlay codes. The city of Toronto added 437 to 416 & 647; the suburbs added 365 to 905 & 289. Area code 870 in Arkansas was planned for an overlay with 327, but the overlay has been indefinitely postponed, probably until about 2018. Several other areas that approved overlays about a decade ago but then postponed them due to number conservation efforts or other factors, are finally bringing those overlays into effect in the next couple of years. Baltimore, Maryland's 401 & 443 added 667 — originally planned for 2001 — effective 2012‑03‑24. Raleigh, North Carolina's 919 finally got its 984 overlay code, originally planned for 2002, effective 2012‑04‑30. San José, California's 408 & 669 overlay went into effect 2012‑11‑20. Austin, Texas' 512 & 737 overlay went into effect 2013‑07‑01. Northern and eastern Connecticut's 860 & 959 overlay is expected to finally go into effect some time in 2014. In the table below, "Dom. Rep." is the Dominican Republic (la República Dominicana). The states are slightly out of alphabetical order to avoid breaking a state across two columns. (For more detailed information about current and future overlays, see the overlays.html page. For other area code information, check the main page.)

Table Notations:
% concentrated overlay (new area code covers only part of old) [none remaining]
( ) overlay has not yet taken effect
@ 321 is a separate area code for the coastal area (the "Space Coast" of Florida), but also an overlay of the inland 407 area (including Orlando and DisneyWorld)
* one overlay code covers multiple original code areas

This map shows all telephone area codes in use as of 2014‑03‑27 in the United States and Canada. Area codes that have not yet taken effect are shown with a green line and the area code in parentheses. Some planned area codes that have been cancelled or indefinitely postponed may no longer be shown. Check the separate page for information about the 19-way split in the Caribbean area. There is also a Caribbean map, which also now shows time zones. Some of the area codes shown above may not yet be in use. For information on the split dates of new area codes, see the table on the separate page. All boundaries shown are approximate.

Errata, Updates and Notes:

COLOPHON:
The map above is hand-drawn, using an underlay of the state and county maps in the Map Art collection from Map Resources <http://www.MapResources.com> The data for the map is compiled from various telecom industry sources, including state regulatory agencies, local exchange carriers, and published telephone listings. The map uses a Plat Carré projection. The map and all derivative works are copyrighted, with the copyright registered with the United States Library of Congress. Commercial use requires written permission from the copyright holder.

PRINTING THE MAP:
It was not possible to fit all U.S. and Canadian area codes into a map size that would print at 100% size on a normal U.S. Letter size page. The best way to print it is to load only the map into your browser or into a graphics program, so that you can print it in "Landscape" mode and at a suitable reduction. The map is 1174 x 1624 pixels, so a reduction of 45%, or a print setting of at least 150 dots per inch, will allow it to fit easily in a single page. If you click on the map above, it will load into its own window, or you can save it to your hard disk. However, you may not redistribute the map in printed or electronic form without a license. Please do not link directly to the map image from other web sites; link to this page <http://www.LincMad.com/areacodemap.html> only.
