Looking for POI's in the Chicago Area
So am I ..
As I learn how to add poi's I am going to try to do a project with as many poi from chicago as I can
I have a few I'll try to send post them
I have a few like -Hollywood casino.
-The Empress casino.
-The Clinton El stop- closest
to Union Station.
-The Union Station stop.
I may have some others I'll try to get them to you.
I also may have to ride the blue line from O'Hare to Clinton in May I'll plot them if I can.
I do have some of the Metra stations from Union Station to Aurora..( actually RT 59 which is the next to last stop on this line. ie. Naperville Lisle etc.
What is the best way to get the coordinates that I have to you for the project, upload a poi or ???
Bill, Jay and Shadey...
I'm currently working on a POI file that contains GPS locations of famous deaths, by murder, plane crashes, natural causes or whatever. The file will have a few points of interest for Chicago, (i.e.) St Valetines Day Massacre, Richard Speck Killings, American Airlines Flight #191 along with any others I find. Anyone with suggestions on more to add, feel free to make a request along with any info you may have on the request.
Any metra stop or any El stop would be great.
I have this file already uploaded.
Thanks for the chicago poi, hopefully it will be good
The POI set that I would most value is a map of the bus and train route. BTW - the new www.goroo.com is a GREAT intermodal planning tool when you need to go from Point A to Point B and arrive at a certain time. I just would like to have these routes on my TOMTOM GO 730 so I caould use them while I am traveling.
Some other ideas for Chicago POI file are:
- Yelp top 100 restaurants
- train stops' parking lots so u can drive there to drop somebody
- "where I have been ticketed" first hand expereince locations where a donut eater has ticketed you
- high crime neighborhoods to avoid. Helps take a detour if driving late at night or something
you can download the POI's from anywhere you have internet access. Even Chicago.
This thread is looking for POI's that are located in the Chicago area, not where they can be downloaded from. You gave me a little toot on this post:)
