This discussion topic is used for collaboration on the Denver, CO metro area project.
You can provide feedback and suggestions for files in the Denver project area by replying to this topic.
I'll wait to see the initial file before making any suggestions, but I was wondering what the boundaries will be? Likely not as far as my neck of the woods (Loveland), but if you do want to include this area, I can help out with suggestions for NoCO.
You are within the Denver Metro area, would you like to be added to the project?
Can I help with this project too?
NoCO has a lot to offer travelers to the Denver area. I'd be honored to be added to the project.
OK you are both added:) have fun!!!
Like what, Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley? Or the Independent Republic of Boulder? ( do you have any idea how many bars and pubs there are around CU Boulder alone? We'll be typing for months! )
I suppose they have something to offer. :+)
I hope you're picked for this team, cuz I say we'll smoke 'em all! :+)
We don't venture into the R.O.B. for any reason! Loveland(home)/Ft Collins/Greeley, etc... the REAL NoCO Although in Boulder County, Longmont and Lyons are pretty nice places, too, and by some they are considered NoCO.
Good to hear you avoid R.O.B. but I do drive thru there on my way to Estes Park.
I vote that we include as much real estate in our POI offerings as we like and let the users skip the ones they don't care for. ( did I just end a phrase with a preposition? )
I'd even go for some places up I-70, US285 or CO-6, e.g. Idaho Springs, Morrison, Black Hawk, etc.
And now back to our regularly scheduled program, already in progress.

I would like to participate in your restaurants project, but I am a bit new to this technology. I just bought a Garmin StreetPilot c530 and have started using it this week. What is the best way to add items from my travels to your database in order to update the POI file for Denver Restaurants?
I have added you to the file. You can now go in and input your additions. Let me know if you need help navigating the system. Thanks for volunteering.
if this is still being compiled, I would like to help, I am in Loveland, Greeley, Fort Collins, area, and noticed alot of new stuff missing. I am also new to the gig like dave. do I collect the address? the lat/long?
I have added you to the top restaurants and top attractions files. Go to those file pages and you will be about to add locations. Let me know if you have any questions about the system. You will want to enter the address and the Long and Lat.
I purchased the Go 720 and have been doing alot of work. I would like to join you group. You have a project to poi all sites in Colorado, US. I would like to help out. I did the Kaiser Perentente Medical files. Now I did it the hard way, so I know there must be easier ways to download the data, massage it, then geocode it. So Can I join you group and can you get me better tools to creat the databases.
I'm in SW Denver metro, and I might be able to offer some small contribution. It sure looks like the restaurant file could use some serious assistance. Only 2 locations????
I have added you to the file;) I can't wait to see what you add to it Rick;)
Thankee, Ma'am. I'll do my durnedest.... I already got some idears...
I live outside of Colorado, but Bayou Bob's is a cool restaurant.
1635 Glenarm Place
Denver, CO 80202-4301
That's southeast Denver suburb. Looks like I'll be able to start contributing.
BTW, I'll be driving on I-84 through Boise next weekend. Where and in which direction should I scream out, "Thank you for all your work!!"?
Sometime soon I hope to get some time to sit down and start working on some good stuff for this POI. Real life has had me running ever since I got on the list.
Has an area been defined for this yet? I live SE of Denver (Elizabeth), but commute into Denver everyday. Should the area be defined as anything within the C470/E470 area, or is that too constricting based on how much Denver has grown over the past 15 years or so?
Not sure what is needed since most things seem to be in my GPS already, but I can contribute what I can or if anyone needs help with areas on the SE side of town.
It looks like Elizabeth would be considered in the Metro area. Go ahead and make your files and then let me know if they need to be attached to that metro page.
I'll start building something for the Elizabeth area and we'll see how it looks. I am still learning this POI editor stuff, but it seems fun.
I now have two projects I am working on, this is fun!!!
After trying three WaMu locations per Garmin, I realized that they were giving me a Vectra Bank locations.
I checked the locations with WaMu.com, and found that none of the locations given by Garmin are correct.
I have been thinking about putting together a POI file for First Banks in Colorado. I see how it can be a big project. Is there anybody interested in helping or has someone already started working on one?
My c550 does not, as far as I know, show long and lat. So waht's the easiest way to get longitude and latitude? Also, how do I know if something I'm going to enter is already in the databse?
And should I put in the actaul location of, say, the front door, or the address location? Can I just feed a googlemaps location in?
Inquiring minds want to know, donchaknow!
Keep in mind that the CSMA (that's a census name for "metro area") for Denver includes all of the following:
Castle Rock, Greeley, Longmont, Fredrick, Eerie, Boulder, Evergreen, Morrison, Brighton, Elizabeth, Kiowa, Watkins, Hudson, and more.
It does not include Loveland/Fort Collins/Berthoud/Lyons, but it probably will in 2010 or 2020 at the latest.
Just adding my name to the hat for volunteering to help with the Denver project. Thanks.
Garmin Nuvi 205W
Would anyone have any objections to me starting a light-rail POI for RTD in Denver? I did not see anything under the Denver area. I travel out there a couple times a year.
I will get started on this and let everyone know when it is complete.
