Download Options

The data can be be downloaded in the following formats

Level of Detail

Standard Members less than 1000 points

For a registered standard member, the downloads include just basic information, the site name and its location

Contributing Members with more than 10000 points

For those members that contribute to the content of searchforsites, you get so much more detail in the download.

You not only get the name and co-ordinates, but for KML files you get all of the additional information for each site, including a list of the known facilities, location information, pitch information, tarrif information and any additional information known for each site

Notes:

CSV files are lmited in the amount of additional information they can support so the additional information is limited to a list of the known facilities

OV2 files do not support extended information for custom POI files
