    Smart Poits of Interest (SPOI) is an app for accessing points of interest all over the world. A point of interest (POI) is a specific point location that someone may find useful or interesting. The dataset includes more than 28 million points of interest.  SPOI is the largest open and harmonised database in the world. The SPOI dataset is a seamless and open source of POIs available for download, search or reuse in applications and services. Its principal target is to provide information as linked open data (LOD). SPOI complies with the LOD 5 star rating system and offers data through SPARQL endpoint.

    The key features include:

    • OPEN AND SEAMLESS DATABASE - a seamless open database of POIs, which are distributed as 5‑star linked open data accessible for all users under the ODbL licence.
    • OPEN AND FLEXIBLE DATA MODEL - a data model comprising important information for applications mainly from the tourist sector.
    • COMBINATION OF GLOBAL AND LOCAL DATA - a combination of global data (selected points from OpenStreetMap) and other open data sources.
