Someone asked how to find places where they would be traveling yesterday.
Depending on where you are traveling, you might look at poi-factory.com.
You can download data files containing points of interest there and convert
them to a format Loadstone can use.
If no data are available on Poi Factory's website, I would do the following.
First, I would download data for that city or town.
There are several ways to find restaurants and other places in unfamiliar
locations using the internet. After that, you can use a website called GPS
Visualizer to get GPS locations for particular addresses. Finally, you can
convert the point file to a format Loadstone can handle. This is fairly
time-consuming but I can't think of a better idea. Let me know if you want
more information on how to do any of this.
