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

    I tried making my first POI (you can delete if it's not like it's supposed to be) and uploaded it.

    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.
