Dear OSM Community,

Advance apologies for cross-posting.

Could any one point out an OSM data model that has been used for sports
activities, or any past, present, or future-planned project that has/will
make use of sports, for example: football/soccer or swimming to be specific?

The existing list of OSM based services
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/List_of_OSM-based_services#Biking.2C_geocaching.2C_hiking.2C_sport>
only
mentions hiking, geocaching and biking. Other information on taginfo
<https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/soccer> is very scanty. Although - *OSM
Stories *seems not updated of recent, there are no sports-related case
studies. <http://osmstories.org/>

The OSM Wiki <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Map_Features#Sport> as
well has information on sports and related tags
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:sport>, which has been used to
update the *Data and Mapping
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Mapset18#Research_on_a_similar_initiative_like_Mapset>
-
*section of MapSet - Wiki Page still a work in progress.

Most organisations consider sport as a corporate social responsibility
(CSR) activity, other individuals do sport for leisure, whereas talented
individuals do sports as a career.

In the humanitarian world, sports can fall in the category of livelihood
<https://jsfd.org/sport-and-livelihoods/> with various themes
<https://jsfd.org/sport-and-education/> but there could be other numerous
ways of applying sports in different fields.

MapSet would like to engage* volunteer passionate mappers* from
existing mapping
groups
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Uganda#Mappers_and_Groups>
and communities in Uganda and else where to create a new initiative/focus
on sports.

Feel free to send your comments on the above wikis/references, directly to
me, or respond to this thread.
