Additions and Corrections requirements?


Hi All!

While I have read the FAQ " How Do I Update A File That Is Already On The Site?", when I contact the kind person who has already established a POI file, what information is required?

Is the address enough or are the GPS coordinates also required ?

I'm sorry if this has already been covered. When I use the "additions and corrections" search term, I get 80 pages of hits...

Many thank in advance!


For Me

As maintainer for the Rest Areas Combined file there are various methods to assist me with new info.
The ULTIMATE is to give me coordinates & what the "location" is - such as Rest Area, Welcome Center, Turnout.
If not the coordinates I need the Highway or Route #, the state, the mile marker or exit number OR a nearby city. The direction of travel is also helpful as sometimes smaller areas can be partially hidden by foliage.

Thanks for asking -

An area McDonald's has closed and a new one opened about a mile away. I wanted to send that information on and wanted to include all necessary data.

Thanks Again!


For the McDonalds file

I need the address, city and state. If possible, the latitude and longitude. In the case where one location is replacing an old location, I also need the address of the old location so that I can delete it from the file.

Information Sent

I just sent you the info for the new & Closed McDonald's in my area.
