In the POI map we visualize the "Points of Interest" that can be found in OSM data. From several hundred categories, you can get an overview of the variety of data and completeness of the OSM database worlwide.
When clicking on a POI any available information for that POI is displayed.
For the creation of POIs also faces are evaluated. For example, if a fire station building detected in the data, we generate a POI about this building, which is placed inside the area of the building.
You can save map sections with the bookmark function of your browser. Here, the map section and all selected POIs and geometries are stored.
You can also copy and save the current browser line (URL) easily. The link thus produced can be send to someone. After clicking on this Link the map will open then as you have set it with the switchable POIs.
Clicking the right mouse button on the map opens a context menu. From this menu, you can select an editor for OSM, where then the selected map section is opened for editing.
To edit you need a benevolent OSM account, you can create at any time for free.
By using the menu, it is also possible to display an aerial view of the current section.
On request we add additional POI categories.
