OpenStreetMap - Points of Interest (Australia) 2020

This point of interests dataset was extracted from OpenStreetMap (OSM) across the geographic area of Australia on 05 August 2020. Its purpose is to display points within Australia which people may find of interest, this is not limited to major landmarks and include simple amenities. Note, however, as this dataset is built by a community of mappers, there is no guarantee of its spatial or attribute accuracy. Use at your own risk.

For more information about the map features represented in this dataset (including their attributes), refer to the OpenStreetMap Wiki: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features and the Points of Interest: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Points_of_interest.

Please note:

  • The original data for this dataset has been downloaded from Geofabrik: http://download.geofabrik.de/australia-oceania/australia.html on 05 August 2020.
  • AURIN has filtered the original data and omitted features to present the Point of Interests.
  • Points of Interests have been defined by features which contain any tags within amenity, leisure, sport, tourism or historical.
  • Due to changes in tagging, previous versions of OSM may not be comparable with this release.
