This might be anything from accommodation (for a business traveller or tourist) through landscape features (for planning uses or the emergency services) to transport links (from rail and air to bus and tram users). Points of Interest includes POIs with a postal address (eg banks, hotels and restaurants) and those without (eg lakes, electricity sub stations and golf courses).
