    Overview

    A unique Points of Interest dataset using the latest business listings in ready to use GIS formats.

    Our customers asked for a comprehensive, up to date and accurate Points of Interest dataset for Northern Ireland, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

    How this helped our customers

    Points of Interest data is of enormous value to a range of customers across a wide range of applications. In particular it can fulfil “what’s in my neighbourhood” or “where’s my nearest” type questions in a range of application.
