The key fountain=* is used to map the subtype of fountains amenity=fountain and drinking water fountains amenity=drinking_water. With the currently documented values it is especially useful if many instances of the same type of fountain are deployed.
Common generic types
|fountain=nozzle||Tag indicates a nozzle where water comes out. Usually this means at high velocity. Wikipedia has some information. Used in combination with amenity=fountain.|
|fountain=bubbler||This is a generic drinking fountain type for fountains which slightly jet the emitted water in the air for the purpose of easy drinking. It may be difficult to fill a bottle in some cases. You can use this tag for all fountains which work according to this principle, but if a more specific (sub)type is available you can use this.|
|fountain=drinking or fountain=drinking_fountain||Tags indicate a generic type of drinking fountain. If your fountain can be described with a more specific tag (e.g. fountain=bubbler), you are encouraged to use the more specific type.
Picture: drinking fountain at the Bolsena lake in Italy.
|fountain=splash_pad||Tag indicates a splash pad or spray pool.
Picture: splash pad on the Detroit Riverwalk.
|fountain=stone_block||Tag indicates a generic fountain type for fountains that consist mostly of a stone block.
Picture: stone block drinking fountain near the Basilica Saint Paul outside the Walls, in Rome, IT.
|fountain=bottle_refill||Tag indicates a generic drinking fountain type which jets the emitted water downwards at lower pressure than a fountain=nozzle, intended to fill reusable drinking bottles. It may be difficult to obtain water directly in hands or mouth in some cases, due to features such as a large bottle sensor to activate the flow, or a recessed water nozzle. These seem to be increasingly common at transport, leisure and health facilities in GB. Should always have bottle=yes. If it is part of the same installation as a fountain you can drink directly from, use fountain=bubbler and bottle=yes in preference to creating multiple points.|
Specific types of drinking water fountains
The tags in this section indicate specific types of drinking water fountains and are used in combination with amenity=drinking_water. Please use them only for those exact types and not for similar or different fountains.
|Picture||Tag||Rendering in Röntgen||Description|
|fountain=nasone||Tag indicates a Roman style drinking water fountain. Wikipedia has some information.|
|fountain=toret||Tag indicates a particular drinking water fountain style in Turin. Wikipedia has some information.|
|fountain=roman_wolf||Tag indicates a particular drinking water fountain style in Rome. It is a drinking fountain which is typical for dog parks but can also be found elsewhere. The water comes off an iron cast wolf's head and there is a small trough where animals can drink. The fountain itself is made from travertine.|
- Lifecycle_prefix is a standard way for adding information about the working status. Typical tags are disused:amenity=drinking_water and abandoned:amenity=drinking_water
- operational_status=* generic tag used by some mappers to give information about the operational status. Please do not use fountain=running, as the fountain is about a type of fountain.
