What is a POI?
POI stands for Point of Interest and refers to any destination that a traveller might want to get to. All GPS devices come with a variety of POI data installed - such as motorway service stations, railway connections, museums and galleries - but many more can be added manually or downloaded from the internet.
POI data not only include the coordinates of each Point of Interest - allowing a logo to be positioned on the map generated by your navigation system - it also supports telephone numbers and other contact details. Think of your collection of POI destinations as your personalised 2D directory that instantly finds you businesses and services when you are in a new town or city.
For a business, what could be better than allowing customers to download GPS data on all their outlets directly to their PDAs? Wherever they are, existing and future customers will always be able to find you. For businesses with hundreds of branches in dozens of cities - such as banks or fuel companies - this is indispensable. However, the idea can work just as well for smaller businesses and chains, including restaurants, shops, hotels, tourist sites and other service providers.
The POIplaza is a collection of useful points of interest for free download directly to PDAs or GPS navigation systems.
