A [W] coworking space is a place where people can work. They almost always charge a fee and provide services such as desk space and Internet connectivity. Some spaces offer other facilities, such as workshop space for crafts and technological development. Often, they are open to people regardless of their employer.

Add a node to the centre of the coworking space and tag it with amenity=coworking_space. Alternatively, you can map an area. You can name it with name=*.

Tags used in combination

  • operator=* – for the operator's name
  • opening_hours=* – for the opening hours

Tagging alternative
