How to map
Place a node centrally at the location of the showers amenity and tag it amenity=shower. If possible use an area for a shower building and add a node entrance=* to the entrance on the outline. (This is helpful for blind navigation users).
Tags used in combination
Standard combination tags:
- name=* - for the name of the showers (if they have a name)
- supervised=yes/no/interval - whether the showers are staffed with a cleaner; these showers are usually tidier, and the cleaner might expect a tip
Ideas for "access" tags:
- male=yes - male-only or segregated shower
- female=yes - female-only or segregated shower
- unisex=yes - unisex shower
- access=customers - used if shower available only for customers
- indoor=yes - indoor shower
- outdoor=yes - outdoor shower
- capacity=* - capacity of the shower in persons
Showers inside places
Camping sites often have showers for customers, usually in a central services building. Use shower=yes in this cases.
Shower road signs
We could do with a better photo illustrating a shower, preferably a specifically public shower.
