Best Buy Project discussion

 

This is where you post updates for the Best buy Project.

I am looking for someone to take over this file, the original author has not been around in almost a year and I am ready to transfer responsibility to someone else.

procedure

I am hoping that people will post their updates here and then if I see that you have not been on for a while I will send you an email with a link to this thread so that you can see what needs to be updated.

Miss POI

We will all help

Just let us know which ones you want checked out and somebody will help you out.

I can check the Southern Maryland/Northern Virginia areas. This is the area below DC, not on the East side of the bay.

List of all current Best Buy stores

I have a list of all current Best Buy stores, I just don't have their corresponding coordinates. I'm working on that ATM. I'll break it down by state once I get that done and then upload the files.

Correction to Concord, NH store

The Concord store has the wrong address and coordinates, here's the correct info:

78 Damante Dr
Concord, NH 03301
603-227-0826

43.218867°, -71.485609°

Tucson additions & corrections

I downloaded the Best buy file this morning and I'm in the Tucson area and one of the stores listed as on East Broadway in Tucson actually had coordinates for Brooklyn NY. The Wetmore store was slightly off the actual location and one new store on Calle Santa Cruz was not listed. I have added and corrected as follows. Hope that helps a little.

-110.96318 32.287987 Best Buy Tucson - AZ; 575 East Wetmore Road Tucson
AZ 85705 (520) 696-3442
-110.864416 32.222682 Best Buy Tucson - AZ; 6015 East Broadway Boulevard
Tucson AZ 85711 (718) 769-3321
-110.990759 32.156244 Best Buy Tucson - AZ; 5311 S Calle Santa Cruz

Trouble with a location

I'm having trouble with one of the Best Buy locations.

-87.87571 41.78672 Best Buy Addison - IL; 1038 Rohlwing Rd; Addison IL 60101; (630) 352-5777

Both in Google Maps and on the Garmin, it shows up not at that address but in fact more than 15 miles away.

The correct coordinates are: 41.948386, -88.031828

Please update the POI file! Thanks.

Another wrong coordinates location x 2

The coordinates for the 350 Army Trail Road in Bloomingdale, IL are also wrong.

Correct coordinates are:
41.939220, -88.110720

Is there a widespread issue with the correct coordinates? The two close to my home in suburban (ie, metro) chicago are not accurate.

THe 900 GOlf Road in Schaumburg is also wrong. Correct Coordinates are:

42.050185,-88.056622

seriously, what is going on? or am i severely missing something? This is now three locations I found to be incorrect, off by ~ 10 miles (not being picky by a few feet)

I'm not sure how this poi was made but

I have found that the batch coordinate decoder that is being used by many is not trustworthy, if the address is not found it will return a location on the street and not necessarily at the address. If the street is not located it will give the location of the city.

I find that using the quick decoder or the one that does single addresses to be a better solution. It gives the accuracy address, street or city. If it only is accurate to the street, you can then use Google if you are using yahoo etc. Some times then you get a more accurate result. I always check the results with Google earth to see if it looks correct, check nearby stores for there addresses etc. I believe that this and probably many other pois just used the batch decoder, it is very time consuming to do it correctly, using store maps etc to double check the address if it doesn't look right.

But I have made all the corrections you have submitted (I double checked them wink , not that I don't trust you but I have found errors in submissions), and thank you for bring these errors to my attention...

Does somebody want to

Does somebody want to correct the geocoordinates for a Best Buy store located in N Attleboro MA? The correct coordinates are:

Latitude: 41.938418 / Longitude: -71.349874

The coordinates in the current Best Buy file place it about 7 miles north of the actual location. The other file data for that store seems OK.

Spartanburg South Carolina

Line 515 can be deleted since Best Buy closed that location and moved to it's new current location at line 514 (110 East Blackstock Road, Spartanburg, SC 29301).

The old Best Buy at line 515 is now a Peak Fitness.
