POI data refers to “Points of Interest” data. In the context of mapping, navigation, and location-based services, a Point of Interest (POI) is a specific location that someone may find useful or interesting. Examples of POIs include:

  • Restaurants
  • Gas stations
  • Museums
  • Tourist attractions
  • Hospitals
  • Shopping malls
  • Hotels

POI data typically contains information about these locations, such as their names, addresses, types or categories, phone numbers, website URLs, and geographical coordinates (latitude and longitude). This data is valuable for various applications, including GPS navigation systems, travel websites, local search services, and many other location-based services or applications.

Outscraper provides you with two methods to obtain POI. You can either utilize scraping tools to extract POI from public platforms such as Google Maps or acquire POI data licenses directly from Outscraper.

Pricing for POI data starts from $1 for fresh 1,000 POIs.

The most popular way of getting POIs is to extract them from public sources like Google Maps.

Alternatively, you can receive regular delivery of the fresh POIs on a contract basis from different data providers.

A POI (Point of Interest) database is a collection of data points that represent specific locations or destinations that might be of interest to users, especially in the context of navigation and location-based services. These points can include a variety of places such as:

  • Restaurants
  • Gas stations
  • Hotels
  • Tourist attractions
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Shopping malls
  • Parks
  • Airports
  • Train stations
  • And many more

Each POI typically contains information like:

  • Name of the location
  • Address
  • Geographic coordinates (latitude and longitude)
  • Type or category (e.g., “restaurant” or “museum”)
  • Additional details such as phone numbers, operating hours, ratings, or reviews

POI databases are commonly used in GPS devices, mapping software, and mobile apps to help users find and navigate to specific locations. They can be sourced from various providers, and some databases are more comprehensive or specialized than others. For instance, a hiking app might have a POI database focused on trails, campsites, and natural landmarks, while a city travel guide app might prioritize restaurants, museums, and historical sites.
