Good day column,
POI database files are not supported, thanks for understanding.

Hello Menion.
Related to this topic, there are other threads in the help desk and forum:

http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/possibility-of-creating-own-poi-data-files-from-osm-database
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/oam-offline-poi-database
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/how-to-create-an-own-poi-database

http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=4333.45
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=5831

In one of them (first), Petr commented that they are thinking about publishing the tool to use to create the database of POIs (LoPoints), in case of many votes. What idea would it be?
I wanted to ask you in what thread (the forum or help desk) can you follow the progress of this topic?
Thank you very much  :).
Greetings.

Hello tigus,
understand. I've changed first idea on help desk to "votable idea". Because we have our internal generating tool connected to some other tools, it is even not so simple to just publish it and because of quite a lot of other work, it make take some time, thanks for understanding.

That is what I assumed :-) But never mind: such operation will never be a push button thing  for just users, but only for people who are at some level of programming or scripting skills.
Hence it would be sufficient to just provide the tool and describe what the input conditions are. And it is our problem how to meet them.

Thanks for the reply.
I agree with michaelbechtold, like the tool to generate the graph to be able to use GraphHopper offline, the generation of the database of POIs could be one or several script in which oneself have to get the source of the data.
Greetings and to vote ;) .
