How do I use Points of Interest data in ArcGIS?

 
Anonymous asked May 26, 2015

I recently downloaded some Points of Interest data from Digimap Data Download, but I’m having difficulty importing it in to ArcGIS. Do you have any information on this process?

To import Points of Interest data in to ArcGIS you need to create a schema.ini file so that ArcGIS understands the delimiter used in the file (which is the pipe character). Full details on importing text files in to ArcGIS, along with an example schema.ini file, can be found on the following help page:
