BP Gas Stations POI

 

Would love to see BP Gas station POI file updated more often. Is there a way one could contribute in updating this file? I have searched around BP's website and even emailed them to obtain location database without any luck. The file has been updated last on February 2013 and many gas stations have closed/moved/opened since then, not to mention it was not full list of stations to begin with.

I wish there was a way to get the list from BP so would could keep this fresh like Shell Gas Stations POI file.

It seems sometimes the marketing people and IT people don't understand a person's needs when operating a vehicle and needing fuel. Or is it they don't think texting and driving is dangerous?

I have that file and it has been on my to do list. I will try to update this file in the near future. In the meantime, if you have any specifics, please send them to me. By the way, it was a complete listing at the time of my last update.

a real PITA to update. After stripping the locations from their web site, they need to be organized into a file, sorted, duplicates deleted and then geocoded. A good 8 or more hours of repetitious work. Thanks Mahoney, some of your files are real bears to update.

Thanks for doing this

Thanks for doing this bud.

Your efforts are much appreciated, but still it does not solve the problem with BP support not being able to provide at least CSV file with all current locations. How does Navteq or TomTom get the database if they request it?

Mahoney is GREAT!!!

I have had the opportunity to send Mahoney various updates over the years. He has always done a quick job of updating the things that I have sent him. He takes care of a great deal of POI's and he does great with all of them. If it seems that I'm on Mahoney's band wagon, it's because I am. Can't say enough about what he does. (OK Bill, you can now send the check to: wink )
