I think everyone from all nations should try to convince public and private
transportation companies to share their data with us.
IN Switzerland we reached an agreement with Railway and Bus Company in Bern.
Car Postal is still not willing to share their 10000 points for free.

Hi Jim,

Loadstone can import points in a text format with as a minimum: a name
field, a longitude field and a latitude field.  If you come across any
map/point sources with this information than you're good to go.  Google
should be able to help there.  As far as I know, noone has ever reported
being able to buy any maps.

Very shortly I will be uploading the UK Bus Stop data to the Points Share
Exchange  and that should help you over in Dundee a bit.  I'm sure I've
created some points around Dundee University plus there should be some
others in the Point Share Exchange.

Best regards,
