In this section you are going to find all the definitions for the Data Packs we offer. In principle each pack listed below is available as a standalone item or in combination with others. πŸ”‘Β All POI packages use the poi_id field as a key to link the different files therefore a basic package that includes the poi_id is always needed to act as a link between the different data points. This means that the Core Attributes file is always included in all deliveries.

The general structure of our Data Packs is as follows:

Basic Packages

These packages allow you to have a basic list of POIs with potentially some enriched information attached to each individual item.
