Charging place
Status: Draft (under way)

Tagging: type=charging_place
Applies to: relation
Definition: A place to charge electric vehicles, containing multiple charging stations
Drafted on: 2013-01-17

Proposal

A place where several charging stations are available.

Rationale

Single charging stations can be defined using amenity=charging_station. There are places however, where multiple charging stations are available at a single place. When searching for a charging station, for example on a mobile app, this compound of charging station should only be listed as one single source for charging. Therefore, the charging stations can be combined in a relation to indicate that they belong together to one single charging place.
