The tag amenity=compressed_air is used to map a device to inflate tires/tyres (e.g. motorcar, bicycle, motorcycle, etc).

There exist devices on spots like fuel station, bicycle shops or even cafes which are able to inflate tires (tyres) of cars or bicycles with compressed air. This device is called a compressed air device in the following article.

Compressed air for bicycles is often offered as part of amenity=bicycle_repair_station, which has more services than just air. Since amenity=compressed_air is usually oriented towards cars, some people prefer to map cycle pumps as a bicycle repair station with just a pump and no other services.
