How to map

Place a node Node where the machine is located, with amenity=vending_machine.

Recommended combinations

  • vending=* Type of items being sold.
  • operator=* Entity maintaining the machine, and refilling it.
  • brand=* Brand of product being sold.
  • network=* Usually used when mapping public transport related selling machines.
  • ref=* The machine's unique identifier.
  • payment:*=yes/no Could be of good help to indicate.
  • wheelchair=yes/no Whether the vending machine both can be operated from a wheelchair (height of coin insert and display) and is accessible without stairs.
  • covered=yes/no Whether the vending machine is under a roof or inside.

In otherwise covered locations

Added because of an idea in the discussion.

In the case that a vending machine is inside of an otherwise covered location, like a subway station or a pub, we could add a tag to that location like:



In that case it would not make sense to give more information as this could lead to problems of assignment of that data as the user might mix them up with the location itself.

I think we can fix that by putting the vending machine in a separate node and add an: Indoor=yes --Lulu-Ann 17:37, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
