AND Offers High Level Global Geocoded POI Database
Dutch digital map maker AND Automotive Navigation Data has started the distribution of a worldwide database of 2.5 million POIs and areas. The database includes points such as administrative boundaries, airport, train terminal, hotel restaurant, petrol station, etc…

"Today POIs become more and more important to add context to a digital map. In combination with everybody's social graph, more relevant information including advertising, can be offered to the end user", commented Maarten Oldenhof, CEO of AND.

"AND has always envisioned a strong growth of location-based services. In combination with the steep growth of Smarphones, geocoded POIs play an important role in this development as a Smartphone knows its location at all time."

The POI dataset is said to be “commercially available against straight forward and flexible pricing”.
