The POI On Demand service enables users to access highly accurate location-based data that can be used for a wide range of projects

- Over four million location-based POI features available -

For organisations looking to access Points of Interest (POI) data for location-based intelligence, Landmark Solutions, a division of Landmark Information Group Ltd, has announced the launch of a new ‘Pay as You Go’ web portal – POI On Demand – which provides secure, immediate access to the full Point-X GB Points of Interest dataset, which includes over four million active features.

The POI On Demand service enables users to access highly accurate location-based data that can be used for a wide range of projects, such as urban planning, retail or property development or other projects that require the very latest information regarding local points of interest. It includes everything from cattle grids, letterboxes, bus stops and public conveniences, through to nightclubs, cash machines and fish & chip shops.

By overlaying the POI data onto OS Open Source mapping, users can select the geography, the exact features required and instantly download them ready for immediate use within the user’s own GI systems.

Confirms Richmond Crowhurst, Senior Public Sector Manager of Landmark Solutions: “The new POI On-Demand web portal is designed to provide immediate access to a huge wealth of points of interest data for Great Britain. As a Pay as you Go service users can immediately access the data whenever they need it, on a case by case basis. Setting up an account is simple and training is provided beforehand, so users know exactly how to search the dataset to find exactly what they need. Once credit has been added, you can go in and download data on pretty much any POI to support any projects you may be working on.”

The Point-X POI dataset is broken down by nine groups*, which includes 52 categories of data, which in turn are broken down into 620 classes of Points of Interests. As an example, a user is able to search through the ‘Accommodation, Eating & Drink’ group, access the ‘Eating & Drinking’ category, and search on all ‘Restaurants’ within a set geographical location. An alternative example is the ‘Public Infrastructure’ group, which includes the ‘Infrastructure and Facilities’ category, and search the ‘Public Telephones’ class to identify the number of public phones within a set area.

Licencing for the POI On-Demand service is based on a credit cache system from as little as £625 plus VAT. When data is downloaded it uses available credit and users can top-up their cache as often and as much as is needed. And, with Points of Interest data not included in the Public Sector Mapping Agreement (PSMA), the On Demand portal is the most cost effective way for public sector bodies, and consultants working on their behalf, to easily access the data they need.

Demonstrations of the POI On-Demand portal are available by calling the team on 03300 366028.
