SHARING CUSTOM POIs - www.POInUSA.com

1.AVAILABLE POIs / 2.HOW TO ADD OR CORRECT A POI /
3.HOW TO BUILD AND SHARE A POI DATABASE / 4. USEFUL TOOLS



1. AVAILABLE POIs
FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY - DO NOT REDISTRIBUTE OR LINK DIRECTLY TO THE POI FILE
Index : http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=56474


2. HOW TO ADD A POI

If you have any POIs you want to add to existing databases, just post a message in the thread where you downloaded the POI (individual thread or general thread if applicable) :
- POI Database concerned
- Description
- Latitude (in decimal degrees, DD.dddd)
- Longitude (in decimal degrees, DD.dddd)
The Database "manager" can then add the data and upload a fresh file to the server.


3. HOW TO BUILD AND SHARE A POI DATABASE

  • How to build your own POI Database by njphilwt - > LINK <

  • Uploading your POIs :
    You can upload you POIs using this method:
    1. Make a zip of your .csv and .bmp file and call it USERNAME_POICATEGORYNAME.zip (avoid spaces)
    1. Send your zip file here: http://www.gpspassion.com/_safileup1e.asp
    2. File will be in http://www.gpspassion.com/upload2/USERNAME_POICATEGORYNAME.zip
    3. You can link it with this code (remove the blanks)

  • [ url="http://www.gpspassion.com/upload2/USERNAME_POICATEGORYNAME.zip" ]POICATEGORY[ /url]
    4. Leave a message here so the admins can update the links.

    Note : do not copy POIs available elsewhere, the POIs must be yours, after recording them with your GPS on the spot for instance or placing them on a map based on previous trips.


    4. USEFUL TOOLS

    • POIedit to create POIs or import existing lists, save them to .asc, remove the first 3 lines and then rename to .csv and you're set to import them into the POI Loader, to use them with TomTom save them to .ov2
    • Maps of North America for use with POIedit - >> HERE <<
    • GPStoPOI (beta) by njphilwt - this program converts from GPX format to CSV format or vice versa. You can create waypoints in MapSource and then convert them to POI (CSV) files. You can also convert POI (CSV) files that others have created, and then edit them in MapSource, see link for details

    Gilles Kohl just released his updated version of PinsToFile2006


    PinsToFile is an Add-In for Microsoft MapPoint 2006 that can export pushpins sets to file in the following formats:

    • CSV (comma-separated values), e.g. for processing in Microsoft Excel Virtual Earth web page

    • GPS exchange format for use with GPS software like Garmin MapSource

    • KML (Keyhole Markup language) for usage with Google Earth

    • TomTom ASC file for users of TomTom navigators who want to create POI overlays.

    Free download here: http://www.gilleskohl.de/mappoint/PinsToFile2006/

    Sorry, newbie mistake on my Roadtrek file. I realized my bmp name had to match my csv file name, so I made the change and reuploaded my file as Roadtrek.zip

    Hope I got it right this time.
    Thanks.

    I've uploaded a POI file covering all of the wineries in the Niagara region of Ontario, Canada. You should find it useful for doing a wine tour of the region. I don't understand the instructions for linking the upload. Hopefully the moderator can handle it.

    Please explain about the problem you had. Did you have trouble opening it? If so, what software are you using? The file was created with WinZip 9.0 so it's a standard format file.

    Or are you having trouble with one of the files in the ZIP file?

    Hello,

    Just uploaded a file called blaster2004_POI_NoRight_Turn.zip

    Certain areas in Ontario do NOT allow right hand turns to be made.

    In file ex: -79.541425 43.790829 "RIGHT TURN NB" Colossus Dr

    NB after Right Turn means North Bound facing North of course

    Cheers,

    Hi blaster2004,

    Here is your file :

    http://www.gpspassion.com/upload/blaster2004_POI_NoRight_Turn.zip

    There are only 3 POIs in your file. It's not enough to be accepted in our INDEX OF POI COLLECTIONS.

    Hi jlb,

    Yes, there is three but it's a start. Other GPS users can help me out in Ontario. In Quebec Montreal no right turns are allowed. In Laval right turns are allowed but in certain streets they to don't allow them.

    Since I can't drive all of Ontario I thought other users can give me a hand and get it started.

    How many is the min jlb.

    Cheers,

    I am new to this so please bear with my muddling :). I saw someone request a POI for Ontario's Beer Store chain. I spent a few minutes pulling it together and included a 16x16 colour icon.

    Included are all but 2 of Ontario's Beer Store locations (450 total in file) as of Nov 9, 2006. There is a CSV, BMP, and OV2 for TomTom Navigator.

    Hi davidoh,

    Welcome to the forums.

    You said:

    I spent a few minutes pulling it together and included a 16x16 colour icon.

    Have you extracted your POIs from another site?

    No, these are 100% original as far as I can tell... I went to each site, cut and paste location data from their sites, and pasted them into an Excel spreadsheet, then geocoded them, created CSVs and OV2s, used Photoshop to crop logos to a 16x16 bmp and uploaded...

    (Not bad for a beginner if I can say so myself :)

    Jean,

    Uploaded an updated file for Harbor Freight stores. Within six hours of posting, someone had the correct coordinates of one of the two unconfirmed locations. I think 've been bitten by the POI bug!

    Garmin 2730 since July 2006.

    Hello,
    I just uploaded a list of bike shops in the continental US at: http://www.gpspassion.com/upload/bsheffield_BikeShops.zip

    I also created a new topic under Custom POI "Collections"

    Let me know if there is anything more I need to do to get this set up. Thanks for having this site. It's great to have a place to share all the POI I've been collecting.

    Hi,

    The File containing most of the Royal Bank of Canada ATM locations have been uploaded under the name RBC_ATM_BANKS.zip. This file covers all of Canada and the lat long location values are as provided by the Royal Bank Website. (i.e not accurate, but probably close enough) A total of 2194 locations have been included. Due to the circular way the RBC web works there may be some holes.

    Files included are RBC_ATM.csv, RBC_ATM.ov2 (for Tom Tom) and a 16x16 icon image RBC_ATM.bmp

    Enjoy!

    thanks

    Hi Jean,

    It is not really published on RBC's website but I found it "hidden" in the raw .html file when the locations are listed, five at a time. I spent the best part of 12 hours to extract the data using macros to manipulate the html strings, deleting duplicates afterwards etc. Would that still count as being from their website? However, I respect the rules. What I could do is to delete the lat long values and to post only the addresses, then someone who want to use it can run it through their own address to gps coordinate conversion tool. That way at least some of the work done could be shared. Would that work for you?

    thanks

    Here is an open source software which can process POI lists and find duplicates, merge lists (removing or marking duplicates) etc. It can be even used to calculate distance between POIs.

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/poi-dup-finder/

    This utility can:

    * Find and mark duplicate POIs
    * Eliminates duplicate POIs
    * Handle POI file lists. It can as well merge files or process them individually
    * Set the distance within which POIs will be considered as duplicates.
    * The result is always saved into CSV file.

    This can be really useful for editing and processing POI lists.

    Today's group of posts is my first attempt to contribute to this
    board. If you have a suggestion on a better way to contribute,
    please educate me.

    Certain files for which I have corrections have links only to files
    and not to threads regarding them. So in the absence of being able
    to submit them under the appropriate thread, I will submit them
    here for your consideration.

    Missing Location in the Best Buy csv file:
    Best Buy - Aventura - 21035 Biscayne Blvd
    Coordinates are: 080.14236 25.97071

    Circuit City csv file:
    Line 572 Store 859
    New Coordinates: 080.14449 25.96686

    Outback Steakhouse csv file
    Line 564 Address 3161 NE 163rd st.
    New Coordinates: 080.13845 25.92750

    Ruby Tuesday's csv file
    Line 242 Address listed as 18801-b
    City needs to be changed to "Aventura"
    New Coordinates: 080.14582 25.95003

    I have no idea how to equate distance in feet with the difference
    in coordinate readings, so I don't know exactly how far off of the
    file they are in feet. The reading was taken at the front door
    of the establishment with a Zumo550 that claims to be accurate
    within 11 feet.

    Dan

    Uploaded Speed and Red-Light Cams for the Phoenix Metro area current as of this post. Arizona needed to generate revenue due to the states HUGE budget deficit. So they decided to stick it to the tax payer and installed a bunch of these cameras on the highways.
    I'd been looking all over for this data but had no luck finding a current download. So I made one myself.
    The data is in 2 convenient formats:
    Garmin CSV
    and
    IGO/MIO CSV,TXT and spud

    Enjoy...I will probably be doing one for all of AZ soon.
