Where do i find information about something like, "how many restaurants are on my area?" or "Where is the Nearest Gas Station?" are there databases with this kind of information? if yes, where and how can i access them?

Sorry for my bad english.

Best Regards.

I just use Google.  Restaurants in Greenwich will give you just that. The bigger issue with restaurants is the sheer number, so Charlie's restaurants in Greenwich will get you nearer.

Gasoline outlets near Smith and James in Phoenix will also work.

Databases?  Not many free databases. Boards of Trade, Chambers of Commerce, and the like often sell such business databases. I see these, but I do not see public databases freely available for business needs. .... Thinkpads_User
