This Google sheet contains list of POIs to retrieve in Google Map.
The Google sheet contains:
-the name of the brand of the POIs if there is one
-the state (for the US only)
- the approximate latitude (in most of the cases, we are not able to provide information)
- the approximate longitude (in most of the cases, we are not able to provide information)
-a link to Google Map that simulate a search with the full address (address + postcode + city + country)
-a link to Google Map that simulate a search with the approximate latitude and longitude, if applicable
-a link to the retailer website (if applicable).
We will require you to collect this information:
-the shape of the store as polygon lat/longs (given by our tool)
-the last update date of the POI on Google Street View
-if the POI is in a mall (shopping center with a lot of stores)
-the floor if it is in a mall,
-numbering starts at 0, with the first floor (or ground floor or street level)
-if the POI has more than one floor, indicate the closest floor to the ground floor (0)
-if the POI is underground, use minus numbers.
Information should be gathered in the google sheet provided. Once a POI is completed, input a status in the "Data Collection status" column:
-"Done" if the POI and required information was found
-"Cannot locate POI" if you find the POI but cannot determine its exact position OR if you could'nt find the POI
→ To determine the exact position and shape of the POI:
-on Google Map, find the POI and determine its exact delimitation thanks to Google Street View and Earth view.
Warning: the POI provided by Google Map is usually not enough well located
- Determine the shape of the POI
- Click on each corner of the store's walls so that our tool draws the shape of the POI
→ To get the update date of the POI on Google Street View:
-go on Google street view
-from the top left corner, get the last update date
→ To get the floor of the store in mall:
-if the mall is mapped by Google Map, on the right side, the floor is indicated on the right side. If not leave it at 0.
-information can be find as well in the website of the retailer
Volume & timing
We will expect you to collect data for 2000 to 5000 POIs a day. If you consider this is too much, let us know how how many you can do in a day.
For us data quality is a very important matter. Thus, for a given list of POIs, we will request 3 partners to collect data. We will then compare their results and only keep the ones that are very similar. The errors will be sent back to you to be corrected.
We pay a fix price per POI ($0.17) and its information and ONLY IF it passes the data quality test.
