Here in Thailand there are many vending machines that sell purified, ion
exchanged I believe, water for drinking. Current practice seems to be to
tag them with amenity=drinking_water and leave it at that. What opinions do
you have on that?

>> No. The correct way is
>> man_made=water_tap
>> drinking_water=yes
>> See the wiki.. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/
>> wiki/Tag:man_made%3Dwater_tap
>> The addition of amenity=drinking_water may get it rendered .. but that is

> I agree with Mateusz, you can use amenity=drinking_water and
