Exxon Mobil has POI Files Available On Their Site

 

Exxon Mobil has files available for the locations of their fuel stations. They are offering all sorts of formats. Just go to their website as if you are looking for a station location, or go here: http://www.exxonmobilstations.com/gps

Thanks!

Was not aware of any companies offering this - very helpful to have an authoritative direct source, hopefully one that is maintained on a regular basis.

yes

And I take the data from their website, reformat and massage it and then post it here on Poi-Factory. The files as posted by Exxon have all locations and I trim them to only North America, where they are updated on the first of every month.

Well, the files I get off the Exxon Mobil site are for the USA. No reformatting, massaging or trimming required.

Dude, the file contains 4,516 Mobil Stations, the file name is mobil_usa.csv, and yes, there are a couple stations that are not in the USA. At 110 bytes per station, it ain't worth the effort to purge them.

Of the millions and millions of data points on a GPS, you use only a minuscule fraction of 1% of the total. That must really bother you.

No. I just like to be accurate. That is the reason I verify the locations and only include those in the US for both Exxon and Mobil and only Canada for the Esso stations.

Verify the Locations?

You verify thousands of station locations?

Really?

I have POI and other points from around the world on my GPS, even though I'm never going to go to those locations. My GPS is still accurate.
