Hi is there some database with official information about medical centers, schools, POI's and they'r geo coordinates for all countries in the world? It coul'd be not for free too, but I need the GEO coordinates as well, because I need to connect them to my products!

Thanks Nik

You may want to consider the Geographic Information Systems StackExchange for this inquiry. – danlefree Aug 13 '11 at 14:26

I do not know if this really answers your question, but it is sure worth checking out. I have never used it, but I know people that use it for projects.


You can explore data from a lot of countries, and all the data is nicely displayed. I think there also has to be an api so you can connect it to your application.

Well this are only statistics. I need to download this data and use it into my project. For example if I have some street then I would like to display all the stuff near by in 50 mi radios or something! – Niko Nik Aug 13 '11 at 13:37
Ok sorry I thought it could be useful, guess not. – Saif Bechan Aug 13 '11 at 14:45
Hi, it is useful, but for stats only. I think the answer of my question is OpenStreetMap! – Niko Nik Aug 15 '11 at 14:46
