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.
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
WHAT DOES ACTIVE STATUS OR GENERAL MAINTAINER STATUS MEAN IN POI FACTORY
Is anyone working the Holiday Inn POI file? I notice there hasn't been any additions in 5 to 10 years. I don't think that's possible.
Since Extra POI Editor does not work anymore, I have gone back to POI Editor.
I tried to convert the Harbor_Freight.cvs file to GPX file but it leaves out ‘Harbor Freight’ and put all the rest in the ‘Name’ windows.
Is-there a solution for that?
Looking for a US overview of bridges with challenges when driving a RV, I searched this forum and could understand that there previously was a file that was taken down.
Searching a little more, I found the NBI data set that comes from the National Bridge Inspection that has a dataset that is updated every year.
I downloaded the CSV file and created a small Jupyter notebook:
IS THERE AN EASY WAY TO ADD VOICE ANNOUNCEMENTS TO SPEED AND RED LIGHT CAMERA LOCATIONS FOR FOLKS THAT ARE NOT ABLE TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO DO IT THEMSELVES,IS IT POSSIBLE THAT POI FACTORY MAY HAVE A PROGRAM THAT WILL UPDATE THE GARMIN WHILE UPDATING THE GARMIN TO THE NEW LOCATIONS EVEN IF IT WOULD COST ADDITIONAL MONEY.
Somewhere in my travels, I found a POI file listing all Pennsylvania County seats. I would like to see one for Missouri. I have too much on my plate right now to undertake such a project, but if someone wants to give it a try, it would only be 114 entries. The coordinates could be the State Capitol building. If anyone is interested contact me for more info.
Just wondering if anyone out there is into ham radio? I was thinking about helping update, or just do it myself, the repeater files into type as well as band, for digital modes and analog. Will someone beside me use them?
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?
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.
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.
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?
FYI: Latest Beaches USA poi file was corrupt and could not be updated.
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
Is there a list of files identifying the states still using red-light and speed cams?
As title says, Found one not in POI....
Sitting in Drive Through Lane, I captured the coordinates....
Later today I'll post them here.... I was unable to find a thread for that POI to post in...
More info Later today....
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.
CAN anyone direct me to adding pois to a GMC 2021 or earlier. please and Thank you kindly
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?
