I forgot that a lot of people never saw the original mail where I made this map.

You're right- it's a POI map of nodes (and does not include ways or relations).

I'll look into ways/relations. If I'm making that major change, I'll 
also take suggestions on tags to look at. Right now, I only care about 
amenity=* and shop=*, other than gnis imported data, or cityrack 
imported data (which deserves its own thread).

I'm using those two as a proxy for on the ground mapping, since it's 
quite difficult to edit that data w/o manual surveying.
