The Overture Maps places theme contains datasets with point representations of real-world facilities, services, businesses or amenities.

Key schema design choices

  • Extensible attributes. Points of interest include basic attributes like phone, mail, website, and brand. Attributes currently not covered in the official schema release are allowed to exist with a prefix or ext in their name.
  • Controlled categories. Overture Maps has created a taxonomy that allows for the transformation of different hierarchical and non-hierarchical categorization systems to the Overture categorization system.
