Points of Interest (POIs)


Geo Strategies' POI databases for Turkey provide essential information for businesses developing Location Based Services (LBS), as well as for users in central and local government, emergency services and for use in the commercial sector.

The datasets contain both addressable and non-addressable* information. This makes it suitable for "Where is my nearest…?", or "How do I get to…?" services, as well as providing landmarks for applications involving routing, navigation, logistics and spatial analysis.


* Note:

Non-addressable POIs are those items to which one would never
send a letter, such as monuments, statues, mountain peaks, beauty
spots and similar.

The POI database is grouped under 12 main headings:


Accommodation, Eating & Drinking   




Commercial Services (Business)


Health & Education


Manufacturing & Production

[  8]

Public Infrastructure




Sport & Entertainment






Centres of Settlements (for routing)

[  1]

Entry Points

[  1]

Each group is sub-divided into a number of categories (shown [ ] above) - a total of 144 categories in all.

The complete POI database for Turkey contains over 3,800 individual items (November 2003) and is continuously being updated. All POIs are linked to the road &/or street network and so can be used for route calculation.

The database is fully compatible with the vector database for Turkey and can be used with any of the base-mapping products (TR-Top, TR-Road, TR-Street), depending on the application.

POIs for Turkey are divided into two main groups - Generic POIs and Business POIs. Click on the icons below for more detailed information.
