I got this idea when I posted the coordinates for Mickey and Minnie's house in Disney World's magical kingdom for a member!
I was thinking about making a POI that can be used in pedestrian mode. Example: You go to Disney World you would like to find your way around with out looking at the park maps, just pull out your trusting GPS and use the POI file for Disney World magical kingdom, select the point in the park you would like to go to, then just follow the GPS (or highlighted rout)!
Any thoughts on this?
Sounds like a TourGuide file.
Not familiar with this!
I think this is a great idea. It would be cool to be able to just select the ride you were interested in going on and not needing to hassle with the map.
I will work on one for Disney!
This site may be of interest:
That site has the locations of the main gates for all the parks. Then it has other surrounding locations for tourists like golf and groceries and such. The ride locations is going to take some footwork. Being on foot though it will have more accurate coords. Just stand right at the entrance for the ride.
This is a great idea. Perhaps the custom POI's can be catorigorized into 2 sections, one for auto and one for pedestrian. A POI of Disneyworld, Universal Studios, hiking trails, downtown shopping in Chicago, bike trails, etc, and other places people walk around could really be of great use when the GPS is in pedestrian mode.
Consider, every major tourist area has places to visit once you arrive by car. When you get there you usually have to walk around trying to find out what is important to see. I would love to hear all the ideas and see a pedestrian section begin to develop.
Great idea! Actually Disney is working with Verizon on the same concept. As I understand it special software will be made available (probably for a fee) that can be downloaded into a Verizon phone then the phone GPS is used to guide users to different areas of the park.

Your concept is far superior, potentially making all park attractions easy to find for anyone with a gps.
This is a neat idea but I've never used the pedestrian mode. How does it work? Do you use it as a map with the rides as little icons or more than this?
I'd like a pedestrian mode for IKEA...now that's a place I really get lost in.
