Although I am personally not so interested in the machines, when the laundromats are not mapped correctly (google maps and Apple maps was missing the 4 closest coin laundry places to my residences when I searched so I added them in both) it is very frustrating.

If someone was looking to wash a giant bedspread or duvet, knowing there is only one laundromat in town with a giant machine would be very useful.  

Poi information is steadily being added and expanded upon in commercial apps and OSM. I can tag the genus of a single tree in OSM. 

All this talk is to think about *if* we were to map the number of machines and some rough idea of size - what information could we show that would be useful in a POI display for a laundromat? How could we classify machines in a easy to map but useful way? What units of measurement.  Specially machines might be one of them. 

Comparing it to food menu items at a restaurant is wrong. Takeaway, regional food type, and other restaurant informTion is currently mapped.
