uploading excel wal mart stores

 

I have access to monthly updates for all Walmarts in an excel doc. Previous downloads have been inaccurate and this one is official What do I need in the colums to upload it?

Wal-Mart Group

There is a group that maintains the Wal-Mart file. You can find out more at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/9268.

There is also a discussion thread at http://www.poi-factory.com/node/15288 discussing what is being done to the file.

Before you begin any work on your end, I would consult with the group.

File Format

If you look at other CSV files, the format is pretty standard. The first column is Latitude, the second column is Longitude, the third column is Name (store name and number), and the fourth column is Comment (address, telephone number and other information).

I think you probably have a listing of the stores with street addresses. If that's the case, you will have to use something like GPS Visualizer to identify the specific coordinates.

For Garmin CSV format, the first column is longitude and the second column is latitude.
