Public availability of charging points in the database

We’re currently exploring the data that OpenChargeMap has to offer.
One of our goals is to discern between different types of charges (according to different taxonomies).

Our first question is whether OpenChargeMap covers more than only public charging points? And if so, is there a way to make the distinction between private/semi-public/public charging points?


We do list some sites that are private (such as work car parks, listed as Usage: Private - Restricted Access etc) but we do not list shared residential sites (e.g. people sharing their home charger for others to use) as this has serious data protection implications for our open data set, which we cannot control distribution of.

If you look at the data itself you will see the different categories of usage etc, you can also set them as a filter when using or fetching data from our API.
