Point of interest data models.

These data models allow to model points of interest and related entity types:

  • PointOfInterest : A harmonised geographic description of a point of interest. According to Wikipedia a point of interest, or POI, is a specific point location that someone may find useful or interesting.

  • Beach : A harmonised description of a beach. OpenStreetMap defines it as a loose geological landform along the coast or along another body of water consisting of sand, gravel, shingle, pebbles, cobblestones or sometimes shell fragments, etc.

  • Museum : A harmonised description of a museum. OpenStreetMap defines it as an institution which has exhibitions on scientific, historical, cultural topics. Typically open to the public as a tourist attraction. May be more heavily involved in acquiring, conserving or researching such topics.

  • TouristInformationCenter. A tourist information center which serves as an information source for tourists, travellers and visitors. It can be represented by an entity of type PointOfInterest which category is equal to 439. Another option is to use the schema.org TouristInformationCenter entity type and include those properties which domain is PointOfInterest and/or properties which domain is http://schema.org/TouristInformationCenter.
