|Increase User Engagement with Location Related Places/POI Data
Enabling geo-location awareness to your app doesn’t do much by itself. Next you have to think about providing location related, data rich information to your users. How do you keep your users engaged? What value added services could your app provide so that users return to it? That’s where location related data comes into the picture.
Use our huge database to explore and connect with various categories of POI data like shopping, restaurants, accommodation, gas, tourist locations, transportation, wifi hotspots, ATM etc. Don’t like the data returned by a particular data provide? No problem! We allow you to choose your own data provider (google, mapquest, Bing etc)!
We provide access to data on millions of businesses, points of interests in various categories across the world. Just tell us (well, our API actually) what your users want and we will do the rest. Whether you want data from google, bing, yahoo, mapquest – it’s ok, we will provide easy access to them and you can switch providers at any point. We also have data on quite a few categories that are not served by our partners and you are certainly welcome to use those.
Basic attributes of places include Name, Address, Phone Number, Latitude/Longitude, Category, Email, Website, and Open/Close Status (wherever available). You can also get more interesting attributes for POI data like shopping, restaurants, accommodation, gas, tourist locations, transportation, WiFi hotspots, ATM etc.
