NYC Attractions fixes and new web interface questions

 

Hi,

I used the web interface to fix two bad location with the NYC Attractions POI. First the World Financial District was way up in Midtown, so I picked a lat/long near the the WTC. Also the Sony Wonderland had the correct address 550 Madison, but the lat,long had it around 50 Madison so I fix that one also. GREAT WEB INTERFACE!

So how long until all POIs can be updated this way? Is it just a matter of getting all the current data in the new database format? If so it should not be too difficult to write some simple perl scripts to parse out most of the POI data.

I also fixed the NYC Public

I also fixed the NYC Public Library, MOMA, St. Patrick's. Since I quickly found so many POIs that were way off I think I go through all the NYC Top Attractions POI and make sure they are at least close. BTW whatever geocode tools used for this POI is certainly suspect since so many POIs are just way off.
