About OSM Enriched Data

OpenStreetMap has been offering a free dataset of points of interest for several years, governed by the Open Database License (ODbL).

However, it's important to note that this dataset may contain outdated or inaccurate POI records. To address these issues and provide a more comprehensive resource, the Poidata.xyz Enriched OSM POI Data has been developed as an upgraded iteration of the original dataset.

The enhancements in this enriched dataset encompass various improvements, including:

  • Enhanced categorization of POIs.
  • Improved accuracy of geo-location information.
  • Standardized hours of operation for POIs.
  • Inclusion of source URLs pointing to the most authoritative data sources that contributed to these updates.
In summary, the Poidata.xyz Enriched OSM POI Data aims to provide a more reliable and informative dataset compared to the original OpenStreetMap dataset.

Our process flow:

A new POI comes into existence. It could be a bar, a stadium, a museum, a restaurant, a cinema, or store, etc.. In today's interconnected world its information will appear very quickly in social media, pictures, websites, press releases. Soon after that, our systems will pick it up, match it against an existing OSM POI record, and merge them into an enhanced POI record.

Poi extraction process

We trust that you will find this dataset valuable and invite you to actively participate in its ongoing enhancement. Your feedback is crucial to us, so please don't hesitate to share your input with us at [email protected]. Together, we can continue to improve this resource for the benefit of all.
