    All,

    I am doing a school project for which I need to get location based information such as retail stores, banks, atms, health clubs, etc.,.

    Is there any website or web service that will provide the data in a structured format (XML) or do I have to use the google/yahoo search and parse the HTML :(? Please provide me some examples (URLs, query string), if you know any tricks.

    Thanks for your help.
    Soma

    Happy Coding.

    I am a complete newb but it sounds like something which should be part of the maps API. Check out the API and see.
