Orphaned POI Files

Orphaned POI Files

When a maintainer leaves our community or makes the decision to downsize their projects and gives us notice, we move the POI files to Orphaned Files

Any members interested in file maintaining are welcome to ‘adopt” any of these files.

Pictures for POI Packages & POI Files

I have started this topic because I would like to reach out to all the photographers out there looking for something to take pictures of.

What we need is pictures like on this page: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/10174 that Doc_Brown took for the site of Dairy Queen. Here is another that Doc sent in for Starbucks http://www.poi-factory.com/node/6021

McDonalds USA/Canada Historic data from 2014

Hello, just wanted to say a big thank you to Mahoney for maintaining all the files on the site.

I have a question specifically about the McDonalds USA/Canada data.

Just wondering do you keep previous versions of the file?

Albertsons Stores USA File

This file has been assigned to me for maintaining. The reason for this topic is that I have noticed that a number of downloads have been made over the past few days of this file. This topic is being brought up due to the fact that this file had not been updated in over 10 years. As I began the update, I found that a major update was required.

Converting CSV file to POI file

I have an AROVA GPS. It uses the .POI file extension. I want to convert CSV file to POI file and install in unit. I have no idea how. The file convertor programs I've looked at do not do that conversion. Any help.

Changing an address

Good morning

I've recently come across a few Harley-Davidson dealerships that have either closed or moved. Is anyone making mods to the HD POI files that Dave817 (RIP) created?



Beaches poi file

FYI: Latest Beaches USA poi file was corrupt and could not be updated.

Schnucks Stores and CVS Pharmacy Files

While updating the Schnucks Store file, I noticed that in most of the Schnucks Stores, a CVS pharmacy was located.
Out of 109 Schnucks, a CVS was located inside 100 of the stores. As a result changes will be made to both files.

For the Schnucks file,
Column C will show as "Schnucks [CVS Inside]-Alton,IL"
In column D, both phone numbers are included

Red-light & Speed cam

Is there a list of files identifying the states still using red-light and speed cams?

McDonalds-Removing the locations within a Walmart

According to the McDonalds website, most of the locations inside a Walmart have been removed or are in process of removal. There are 628 locations presently in the file and according to the website around 150 will remain. To determine which ones to leave in the file, it will be necessary to look at each location individually. Too bad that they didn't decide to remove all of them.

Factory Shows One Of My POI's Is Outside US

I loaded my MO Cemeteries POI file, and it shows 10,225 entries. It also says one of them is outside USA/Canada. What would be an easy way to find that one? Anything in EPE that might do the trick?

Canadian NP Red Chairs?

Hi All,
Just wondering if anyone has created a POI file listing all the locations of the 'Red Chairs' in Canadian National Parks.
I believe the information is available in bits and pieces but not all together anywhere, that I've found.


Importance of phone numbers in POI files

As I work on my Bank of America POI file I have been noticing a lot of branches that are "Temporarily" closed. Also, there are now a number "Remotes" that are no longer open 24 hrs.

Wisconsin State Natural Areas

I'm planning to start work on a POI file for Wisconsin's State Natural Areas which the Wisconsin DNR describes as "areas that protect outstanding examples of Wisconsin's native landscape of natural communities, significant geological formations and archeological sites." I didn't realize the scope of this project at the beginning but will still give it a try.
