OS Points of Interest
OS Points of Interest (POI) contains over four million records, sourced and quality-checked from more than 100 leading listing suppliers. You can tailor your order to just what you need and the tiered classifications make it easy to target your selection. So if you only want to know about dentists in Wigan or banks in Kent, we’re able to create a bespoke data set just for you.
The product is updated quarterly in March, June, September and December.
Analyse Beyond Address
Points of Interest can help to identify places by their use and function as well as by their postal address or location. Each record also contains a telephone number, web address and brand, where appropriate.
For the public sector, Points of Interest lets you identify gaps in services and analyse changes in city centre retail space over time. This helps you maintain a quality environment for your residents, shoppers and visitors.

- Accommodation, Eating and Drinking
- Commercial Services
