Today while driving down I 35 in Fort Worth, my Nuvi alerted me about a Love's truck stop in the area. Unfortunatly, there is no Love's there. It's a residential area, just south of downtown. There is a Loves a few miles south of there at the intersection of I 35 and Garden Acres. The coordinates are 32 degrees 35.923 N and 97 degrees 19.060 W. I couldn't find the contact info for the maintainer of this file, but just thought they should know.
It would appear that "a-user" was the maintainer of the Loves files
Correction made and new file uploaded
The one for Rockwall, Tx is about 7 miles east of the POI location. The alert goes off right in the middle of Lake Ray Hubbard. The coordinates are: 32 degrees, 55.089 N and 96 degrees, 25.154 W. Thanks, a_user!
In reviewing the POI it appears as if a great many of the company provided coordinates are lucky to be in the same zip code, let alone state. I'm in the process of reviewing each and correcting all the locations. I'll go through my other truck stop files as well.
Thank you for pointing it out and causing me to reassess the website data. Should have the corrected poi published in a day or two.
I am glad that I found 2 of them. Especially the Rockwall Love's. It was a bit weird to see my alert go off while crossing a fairly large lake!
Wichita Falls, TX
Just downloaded both files and checked the .csv and found errors. When sorted on longitude there are 11 errors. All have bad data but 8 of them are identical.
Had problems with the geocoding. The geocoder I used was returning street level accuracy for locations, but they were in Saudi Arabia, Australia, Poland and others.
Double checked everything, the locations are all now in the US at least.
Shows south of I-80.. It's actually north.. The POI is a bit off, but you can see it from there..hehe
Wasn't sure how to email direct, so I thought I'd post here...
Thanks for maintaining the file
