BofA POI file discussion

 

Just updated the BofA POI file in time for your trip tomorrow. That is, if you are traveling in the NE USA.

Just added 104 new locations (deleted 21 closed) and the file is sorted by Zip Code (up to Florida) so you can easily edit it.

ME, NH, CN, RI, NY, PA, NJ, MD, DE, Northern VA and Tidewater VA have all been verified using BofA website, Google Street view and Bing aerial view. Also used Campus Maps and Mall maps (not always helpful though).

If you see "(Approx)" in the name, then that means that I could not verify the exact location. I would appreciate any feedback on those.

Travel safely, please.

ATMs on Bases

The BoA on naval bases here do have ATMs. You need base decals to get on base, but the military people can access them.

There are some Military bases that the public does have access to, such as Ft. Eustis here in Newport News.

Then there are others that unless you actually work on that base (military or civil service) you are not going to get on, unless you sneak on and that could lead to some jail time or worse, as at least one Navy base here has "Authorized Lethal Force" areas.

The previous maintainer decided to not include Military Bases, but I added them in. Hopefully I got the locations right, as there are very few bases with "Google Street View" laugh out loud

I was refering to the ones in Virginia Beach, VA. I am retired with decals so not an issue with me but I never heard of anyone with decals or even a visitors pass being denied access unless sometype of major evolution was going on.

gone in Colorado, except for 2 ATMs in Denver

I was just in Colorado on a business trip this week - it appears that all BofA ATMs (primarily in gas stations) have been removed. The only two BofA ATMs remaining in Colorado (per the BofA website) are in Denver - one in downtown and the other in Cherry Creek Mall.

Winthrop

It looks like the Winthrop ATM is in Dinkins Hall, east of Oakland, south of Myrtle.

I don't expect you to maintain all these better than B of A does.

Illinois Updated

Updated Illinois. Deleted 46 sites, added 10.

Now up to Zip Code 62896

Missed updates

Sorry I forgot about your post DCONSOLLA, but CO is now up to date.

Metroparker: will check out the Winthrop location.

As to my accuracy: I think you will find less L/L errors than BoA has. Some of their L/Ls are MILES off. If I can't pinpoint the exact location, I'll say "Approximate" in the "C" column. If you find an error that is greater than 50 feet - please let me know and I will fix it.

But I have to ask why is this needed.. My 3597 seems to know where all the BofA locations seem to be...

Good Question

1. Not everyone has a Garmin.
2. Not everyone has up to date maps.
3. There are 4 BoA ATM/Branch sites in Williamsburg, VA - not 3 as shown on the latest "Here" map. Many more are missing from "Here".
4. The location at 36.97895, -76.430914 (Google coordinates) is not there anymore. Drop down to street view and it's there. Go to the BoA website and it isn't listed anymore. I know that it is not there as I work just a few blocks away. There are many more shown on "Here" maps that are gone. BUT, it is on the "Here" map.
5. My POI file is "spot On", location wise, unless I mention "(Approx)". Many of the "Here" and BoA website locations are way off (a few are more than a mile).
6. Even though I am way behind in updating, I am ahead of the "Here" map.

I hope that answers your question.

@Barney when I read this post, I was wondering why you participated in poi-factory if not for the fact that our POI files tend to be spot on.

Those of us who maintain POI files have usually taken the time to get current and accurate locations. For example, on the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores file I agreed to take over, I looked at every location on Google in order to put the coordinates at a point on a major road where one would turn into a strip mall or mall or standalone store (just in case someone wanted to get "alerts") and I also put the front door coordinates into the "comments" field of the .gpx file.

Many also likely do what I do - set up alerts by Google whenever there is news about their POI files. Most of the time, the news release is about "events" relating to the stores but sometimes mine are news releases about a new location or the closing of a location.

BofA in Clovis NM

Just a heads up. My current map (2016.10) is still showing BofA at 2720 N Prince St, Clovis, NM 88101. There hasn't been a BofA here in a while. No ATM or Branch in Clovis. I believe its Washington Federal now, I can double check the current bank name. Anyhow, thank you for your dedication and time.

Yes, he does like to stir things up. Although on this thread, he doesn't get that much exposure, because mostly just the folks that have BoA accounts check it.

I'll keep myself in check, as we all know he's just a "Troll" here at the POI Factory.

Entered correct L/L for many "Approximate" entries for entire list. Google "Street View" is being updated more frequently and that helps a lot. Still seeing views with 2008 or earlier date though. Some small towns have not had all the streets processed.

Most colleges do not list ATM locations on their website, so I am not always sure where they are exactly. Although Google Street Level now shows many campus views which helps when they are outside - usually at the campus student union.
