Im looking for information on School and Playground zones in Calgary Alberta. Does anyone have suggestions where I can find a POI or the information to create a POI.
I don't have a list but I notice that for Calgary the speed limit in school zones is 30 km/h every school day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Can POI's be setup with a time limit?
I do not believe they can be, perhaps if you can get into the code if it is an XML file you may be able to add the time as a variable, I do know you can manual insert the speed limit....in actual fact the speed is 30 km/h from 8:30am to 1 hour after sunset which leaves it wide open for the cops to ticket you, it may be dark but they seem to go by the posted sunset time...I think it should be a set time.

According to http://www.gov.calgary.ab.ca/police/community/pedestrian.htm... it is a set time. It states 'It is now more important than ever for drivers to remain alert in school zones, where the speed limit is 30 km/h from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on school days.'
Wonder if you could fight a ticket based on that. It comes form the Police.
You ae right of course, I actually realized my mistake right after I responded. Schools Zones are a fixed time Playground Zones are not they are from 8:30 am to 1 hour after sunset.
Btw I searched the City of Calgary website for the school zone info but couldn't find any. I have not tried searching for playground zone info. I did find red light camera info listed there.
You could call them at 311 at see if they could provide you with this info.
I noticed that TomTom has a school.ov2 & playing field.ov2 file. I wonder if this contains school zone and playground zone info and how good it is.
Could an ov2 file be converted to a CSV / GPX file which could then be used in a Garmin?
I would have to look into it and see what would be involved if its just straight forward data it should be convertable.
Has anyone been able to look at the tom tom file and tried converting it? I would love to get these playground and school zones onto my garmin.
I work for the CBE, we have a KML file with most of the schools listed. I will post it later.
playground zones, I can see what I can do.
Was anyone ever able to obtain this list or develop a POI file?
It would be great to have this!
PLEASE BE AWARE.. both School & Playground Zones have changed their time and are in affect until 21:00 (9:00 PM)
Hi Kevin, Did you get any info on it?
