Dears OSM Users,

On cycling maps we can see icons with the image of a faucet.

I’d like to have all these points in a database to be used as overlay on my gps tracker for advanced use in long bike travel. Is it possible to have it, also paying a fee? No problem of format, it’s enough a simple list like this (or csv/gpx)

(These are few points extracted "manually”)

45.190067,9.742168 45.18536,9.794016 45.194663,9.860956 45.144495,10.04092 45.197878,10.135144 45.22367,10.25383 45.255128,10.299932 ...

Thank you from Italy!

I have not tested this but I think you can use overpass turbo for extracting the data from openstreetmap.
Zoom to your area of interest, open the wizard, type in amenity=drinking_water and run it. You will see all the output on a map and then use export to get the water points in a format you like.

Besides amenity=drinking_water searching for drinking_water=yes could also be useful (in order to find wells, water taps etc.).
