Currently, you can specify search keywords and my tool will give you all 
locations together with their bounding boxes found on wikimapia then you 
can specify a bounding box and download all data inside it to the 
loadstone database file. However, i noticed, that the bigger bounding 
box you specify the smaller result you receive from wikimapia! So, for 
example, when i specify bounding box of my city, i receive about 1500 
points. but when i specify my district in the city itself, i receive 
about 1000 points, and the number doesn't decrease when I request even 
smaller bounding box. All of this means that you probably isn't able to 
download whole database for the city, you need go with smaller areas of 
your city... Probably, We have to contact wikimapia guys to ask about 
their limitations.

I myself prefer to have several dtabases for different kinds of points; 
but you can import wikimapia generated database and import the data into 
your big one.

> As regards the point share exchange, if it is no longer being maintained, try and get the code. The development team or the archives of this list should give you the author's name and then add your enhancements to it. That way, there is no duplication.
Good point; but PSE is written in PHP language, I don't want to deal 
with PHP anymore :-)
