CAA offices - Canada





New collection


Manager: BobM
Last Update: 03/01/2007
Number of POIs: 125
Coverage: Canada
Available Format(s): csv (Garmin,...), xls
Download Link: BobM_CAA_Canada.zip





Here's a listing of the Canadaian Automobile Association offices - it's based on their website Office Locator. The locations have not been verified and were produced using geocoding websites from the address. City addresses tend to be accurate, rural addresses (RR#, PO Box, etc) do not. The telephone numbers are included for verifying final directions when nearby.

The CSV is formatted for Garmin and has Line Feeds in the 4th field. An Excel file is included so you can format the data for other applications.

Thank you Jean, this I did already.
But For this Poi file (CAA), I did try 2 of the places in it, and they are way out of target, even a few kilometers...., like BobM said, it needs to be check out...
Thank you
I will work on it.

Claude
Can you advise which locations are wrong so I can correct the master file, please?

I originally contacted CAA for assistance with this project but they weren't interested in cooperating. I used their office locator service on their website both to collect the address and to verify suspicious locations. A general problem I've found with Office Locator maps is that they rarely seem to use a "hard copy" map with a genuine location - they seem to be linked to web mapping services so often they get the same wrong result

BTW, Jean was responding on my behalf about using this file elsewhere. You obviously can download it for your own use, but if you take it and post it on another website as your own, then I'd prefer you change it's name so as not to confuse it with this one. It obviously works better for all POI users if there is only ONE file that gets maintained and tweaked until it's totally correct.
