Some POIs for MA, NH (USA)

There is a very large database of POIs here:

I did not extract every category for the MA, or NH.  Some of them are too incomplete to be worth bothering with, and others are just not interesting to me. It's worth noting that the peaks seem to be very complete though, and accurate.

The process to get these split out into gpx or kml files is kind of tedious, and not obvious. I'll post the procedure in another thread so if someone wants other data they don't have to go through everything I went through to get it.
