I don't have a suggestion for the primary tag (amenity=?) but you can consider using recommended tags from amenity=shower and amenity=toilets as change rooms are usually some combination of change area, shower and toilets.

  • toilets=yes/no (are there toilets inside the change room)
  • shower=yes/no (are there showers inside the change room)
  • shower:hot_water=yes/fee/no (do the showers have hot water)
  • fee=yes/no (is there a fee for using this facility)
  • opening_hours=*
  • operator=*
  • supervised=yes/no/interval
  • wheelchair=yes/no/limited
  • female=yes/no
  • male=yes/no
  • drinking_water=yes/no (is drinking water available within this facility)

It's more of a tagging list discussion if these features should be amenity=toilets (with shower=yes/no, change_area=yes/no), amenity=shower (with toilets=yes/no, change_area=yes/no), or amenity=change_room (with toilets=yes/no, shower=yes/no). In my experience these are equally toilets, change facilities, and showers with no clear winner, unfortunately you can't use amenity=toilets + amenity=shower + amenity=change_room together on the same feature)

The interesting thing that in my case changing room is completely separated, you can only change clothes there.

In theory one could use amenity=foo;bar;baz, but data consumers don't support that.

@ddh exactly. That's why I've asked about accepted ways of tagging. I think this amenity is worth proposal.

@Sergey Karava. I agree, change rooms should have some tags to map them. I don't have the answers but I'd like to see a proposal deal with the fact that some change rooms have toilets, some have showers, some have both, some have neither. With support for tagging all the extra attributes about those toilets or showers.

@dsh4 I can think of at least one data consumer (me!) that supports some "foo;bar;baz" combinations on certain tags, but you're right that it's pretty rare.

@SomeoneElse, may I wonder, what application do you run?

@Sergey it's just a renderer. One of the style rules that processes semicolons is:

so that this fast food place:

is displayed with a more appropriate icon than a generic one:
