Point of Interest Deduplication

A Point of Interest (POI) is a set of information about a place with details such as title, address, geo coordinates, and category of the place. Telenav has large POI datasets that are used to provide navigation services, however the datasets are at risk for containing complex duplicates of POIs due to data aggregation from various vendors. The student team worked to design, develop, and test a Java API library that will be used by Telenav to determine whether two POI objects should be considered duplicates or not.
