POIs - Points of Interest


A "point of interest" is a location about which information is available. A POI can be as simple as a set of coordinates and an identifier, or more complex such as a three dimensional model of a building with names in various languages, information about open and closed hours, and a civic address. POI data has many uses including navigation systems, historical place-based research, geocaching, location-based social networking games, and augmented reality browsers.
