How does this tag differ from amenity=water_point? Brycenesbitt (talk) 07:32, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

The water point amenity «is for places where you can get larger amounts of "drinking water". Useful for boats or caravans». Contrary to that, a water tap:
  • May provide potable or non-potable water.
  • May be usable for very small amounts of water too (like a self-closing tap).
  • May actually be used together with the water_point, in case the specific location of the water tap is of relevance. --Kotya (talk) 18:31, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

How can we tag a standpipe of this kind ?
Standpipe to draw water on urban public street
  • It looks like a fire hydrant, but it is green.
  • It is supposed to deliver water not for emergency, but more generally for any needs. --Barnes38
I am not quite sure what it is. I did find the description of the device itself but I cannot understand its application. We generally map things based on their usage, then based on their technical parameters. In this case, the technical parameters are clear, but the usage is not. Any idea? --Kotya (talk) 15:07, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
  • There is a related water point tag, does that look applicable? --Kotya (talk) 15:14, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
