    Neet Points of Interest database

    I need to buy a Points of Interest database. We are currently not using MapPoint for our new website as it has more functionality than we needed. However, now we need a list of landmarks (museums, stadiums, universities, parks, etc.) and their corresponding zip code, city, state, and coordinates info.

    Please help.

    - Dylan

    description

    We need a table of information that contains:
    1. Points of Interests or Landmarks (Malls, stadiums, museums, parks, attractions, etc.)
    2. Address, City, State
    3. Lat/Long coordinates

    We can take the data from there and use it for our quoting engine.

    MapPoint POI List Legatl

    I've discovered how to pull the MapPoint POI list but I'm hesitant to do so because it doesn't seem legal or ethical. There are several lines in the End User License Agreement that seem to say that using their POI info for our needs separate to MapPoint would violate the agreement.
