Was ist eine POI-Datenbank?

Die POI-Datenbank ist eine Sammlung von geografischen Metadaten, die Points of Interest (POI) in der Welt beschreiben.

A point of interest is a record of a place on a map that is typically defined by its geographical coordinates and a few additional attributes like name and category. It can be used for just about anything, from finding hotels near you or seeing which parks are nearby.

Wo werden POI-Daten verwendet?

POI data solutions for navigation and mapping are an important part of the industry. They use this information to provide directions, locations, routes, and distances for people to get from point A to point B.

POI datasets are important for food delivery, logistics and transportation, insurance and financial services, retail, real estate, telecommunications, marketing and advertising, and government and public sectors.

Companies create datasets for a number of purposes. For example, they might identify the competition in a certain neighborhood, calculate shipping rates, or optimize the routing of their fleets in order to improve delivery periods.


There are various sources where you can find POI databases. These are OpenStreetMaps, Google Maps, and government directories.
