I found the  intersections by checking if node belongs to more than one 
way on OSM data and using the joined names of  the ways names as a point 
name. Roads with no 
name are referred by last four digits of their way id. Currently i'm also 
experimenting  if adding a heading of each road will help orientation. For 
example one T-crossing nearby:
"oskarinkatu  north / oskarinkatu south / noviisinkatu  east"

> the get points by civic location function should now work propperly. 
> Previously there were problems with this in some browsers but hopefully these 
> have now been fixed. This function will also now work in browsers that do not 
> support javascript or have javascript disabled.
> The other major upgrade is we now can include openstreetmap data in the point 
> share database. We have a local mirror of the entire openstreetmap database 
> so this data can be selected as a source when exporting. When exporting data 
> there's now an option to select the data source. This can be point share and 
> openstreetmap (the default), point share only, or openstreetmap only. This 
> means that you do not need to download data from openstreetmap and use any 
> tools to convert to loadstone format.
> At the moment the openstreetmap data only includes points of interest (pois) 
> street intersections are not included. Intersections will be included when I 
> figure out how to make the database calculate these. If anybody has any 
> information on how to do this let me know.
> There have also been minor tweaks to the user interface to hopefully make 
> things a bit more user-friendly.
> The point share system is still being worked on so feal free to report any 
> problems you may experience or any suggestions about how things can be 
> improved.
