When you have to create a Place of Interest, it is always an issue what type to select. Do you classify the Natural History Museum with the type "Museum", or with the type "Natural History Museum". And what if a user selects POIs with the type "Museum". Does that user gets also the type "Art Museum"? Not in the past. But that changed!

Here you find this new structure:
