Rendering

Having a single style of rendering should be a good idea, I think ... any icon artist interrested ??--PhilippeP 09:33, 23 January 2008 (UTC)

Rendering sport on Ways

A number of sports occur on linear features (roads, cliffs, tracks, pistes, rivers etc.). Currently renderers treat all ways with sport tags as areas (closed or unclosed), with undesirable results. Some or all of the following sports can validly be tagged on ways: skiing (pistes, cross-country trails, etc), climbing (rock climbing outdoors is nearly always on features which will be mapped as a way), in-line skating (some preferred roads in the Engadin), white-water rafting and kayaking, rowing (e.g., Thames at Henley), swimming (relevant section of coastline, rather than the beach or ocean). I am sure there are others. SK53 12:25, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Multi-sport venues

In much of Australia, cricket ovals are typically used for Australian rules football in the winter months. I imagine there must be other situations where sporting fields are used by different sports at different times. How should we tag this? --Rgmerk 22:29, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

sports field

many schools do have sports fields for all sorts of sports - I think there should be a tag "sports field" -- Schusch 20:51, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

sport=multi ?

I've encountered sport=multi used for this purpose though that may be of little information. According to FAQ#What shall I do for roads that have multiple values for a tag? tagging sport=cricket;australian_football would be more appropriate IMHO (though it still lacks the season aspect). On the other hand the fact that a soccer stadium might be (ab)used for a boomerang throwing competition or even a Rolling Stones concert will still let it be (mainly) a soccer stadium.--hagman 12:04, 10 January 2010 (UTC)

I think "multi" should be deprecated. It is indeed much better to use semi-colon separated sports as you suggest. Concerning other (ab)uses of the venue I'd suggest that what is important is to describe the primary -intended- nature of the venue. Uncommon uses, such as concerts for a stadium are of an opportunistic type, it is not the originally intended function of the structure. -- Manu3d 14:23, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Climbing

There isn't much guidance on how the sport=climbing tag should be used when dealing with outdoor features. What exactly should be tagged with sport=climbing? Possibilities include:

  • The crag (probably a node, or maybe a way following a cliff, or an area)
  • The start locations of individual routes (nodes)

Marking individual routes may be tricky in some cases (e.g. if they are close together or share the same start location), but could be very useful when routes are more spread-out. There are also potentially useful pieces of information about the routes which could be recorded, such as the grades.

Sailing

I miss a tag for sailing! --Markus 18:50, 21 July 2008 (UTC) Me too, as well as one for windsurfing, and one for kitesurfing! --Schwedenhagen 10:08, 15 May 2010 (UTC)

Tennis/Racquet

On the main mapfeatures page sport=racquet is mentioned, on this page sport=tennis is used instead. Now that needs to have a fix. --Skinkie 12:33, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Volleyball

I need a volleyball hall and a beach volleyball field.--Lulu-Ann 13:02, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Signs for rendering

Hi,

I want to add signs for some kinds of sports and also want to keep one style. How can I propose a sign?

Almost all sports have a variation for indoor and outdoor. Maybe it is possible to add a tag for this? --Hanniball76 13:02, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Fitness centre

I am missing a standard value for fitness centres. Something like “fitness” or “body_building”. Is there anything common yet? Candid Dauth 20:24, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Bump --Olejorgenb 18:01, 22 October 2011 (BST)
taginfo has 520 leisure=fitness_station and 35 leisure=fitness_centre objects. --Scai 20:53, 22 October 2011 (BST)
and 291 sport=fitness (about 350 with different spelling), normally used together with leisure=sports_centre ToxyLT 09:52, 25 February 2012 (UTC)

Swimming

Seems that sport=swimming on an area is rendered like a swimming pool - water with a darker blue border and even takes precedence over natural=beach. For swimming pools and small ponds this is appropriate, but on natural beaches this needs an agreed definition: tag where you do the swimming, not the beach where you'd keep your clothes whilst swimming. If there's no marked area in the water, by buoys or other floating markers, the outline becomes quite arbitrary... Any thoughts? Alv 21:50, 2 December 2008 (UTC)

  • Hmmm, does a beach without any swimming-facility (buoys, showers, pier, etc.) deserve being marked as a sport-place? I mean it's obvious that people can swim in the ocean which is naturally right next to a beach, but we also don't tag all roads with sport=hiking/cycling, so why tagging random beaches for swimming? Maybe I didn't get your point. -- Fröstel 23:42, 2 December 2008 (UTC)
There's lifeguards, toilets and some sort of and dressing rooms in the summer vs. the "wilderness" beaches so someone did add the tag already. But no markers of the area in the water. Alv 05:57, 3 December 2008 (UTC)

sport=nautical_center

For the above mention of sailing, I'am proposing and using a new tag sport=nautical_center to tag building or area related to water sports like : sailing (windsurf, kitesurf, sailing_ship, catamaran) in those grouping center, you will find boat renting, sailing formation, competition, etc. This tag is about the sport and does not cover marinas which is different. sletuffe 13:12, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

sport=free_flying

The proposition [[Proposed/free_flying] is duplicate with sport=paragliding while being more specific and also cover hangliding and swift. I propose that this amend the sport=paragliding sletuffe 13:12, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Martial Arts

While importing a data set I came across a building named "Associação de Judo Yamate" (Association of Judo Yamate), and tagged it with sport=judo but see that no martial arts are in the list. Is it wise to tag each martial art separate (karate, judo, tai-kwon-do, kung-fu, etc) or should they be put under a common sport=martial_arts? --Skippern 05:27, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

How do you map a ping pong table?

How do you map a table tennis (ping pong) table? here it is tagged as leisure=pitch, sport=table_tennis. But I think that "pitch" is not appropriate for a table. --Head 21:59, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

leisure=pitch seams appropriate. A pitch is any sort of playing field, and a ping pong table is certainly a playing field for ping pong. And remember that it is not just the table, but the are around the table witch could be called a "ping pong pitch". The International Table Tennis Federation requires a total playing area not less than 14 m long, 7 m wide and 5 m high for competitions. This is often best described as a pitch. Gnonthgol 22:22, 30 July 2010 (UTC)
Hmm yes, I guess you're right. But then, of course, it would be fun if there was a way to also map the table. Does anyone have an idea for that? leisure=picnic table doesn't really fit here ;) --Head 07:02, 1 August 2010 (UTC)


How does one map a trampoline field?

Tagging trampoline fields (fenced fields of around 8-12 trampolines) as playground=trampoline doesn't seem to fit very well. Especially since it often isn't even located on a playground. See these images for reference/examples.

Is there something like sport=trampoline that could be used (i.e. combined with leisure=pitch)? --Mbue 10:37, 11 August 2010 (BST)

See playground equipment Lulu-Ann


Lacrosse

I'm tagging lacrosse boxes as sport=lacrosse Pnorman 23:21, 26 October 2010 (BST)

I've tagged a few myself. They are usually in combination with sport=soccer and/or sport=american_football fields. --Panther37 13:17, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

Cue sport

Lets add sport=cue for cue sports, such as billiards, pool, snooker, Russian pyramid.

Against. We don't use sport=ball either. Please tag sport=billiards sport=pool sport=snooker etc. separately. --Lulu-Ann 12:37, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Most of cue sport centres allow to play all of them. So I'd use sport=cue as well as sport=particular_kind_of_cue_sport. The wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cue_sports mentions dozens of the variants of cue sport — too many to tag every of them. --Surly 17:30, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
It is up to each individual mapper, how many tags are "too many". Think about the usecase: If I am looking for a snooker table, I need a snooker information. A cue-sports information does not help at all. Same as If you are looking for a baseball court, you don't want a ballgame information. --Lulu-Ann 12:35, 20 December 2010 (UTC)

sport=basketball page refurbished

I just refurbished the sport=basketball page. It includes some new keys on which I'd appreciate some comments/feedback, i.e. some might be useful for other sports too. Thank you! -- Manu3d 14:31, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

sport=skittles

I propose a new tag: sport=skittles (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skittles_(sport))

--*Martin* 18:22, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

Shuffleboard

I've started tagging sport=shuffleboard. It seems like people in Florida like to play. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shuffleboard --Panther37 16:55, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Proposal: sport=table_soccer in Pubs

Hello, glad to see a legal combination of amenity=pub and sport=darts here. In German pubs, table football is most popular. It is affordable for small pubs, doesn't need that amount of space, and there are regular "Kicker" competitions in most towns. However, I didn't find a corresponding tag. Wikipedia entry is [1], but also lists table soccer, fussball, foosbal as common names.

Hereby, I propose sport=table_soccer as new tag. Native speakers might vote for alternative namings...

I just read in the Wikipedia article, that there are specific types of tables in different countries. The German type is also called tecball within ITSF. In this case, table_soccer could be the general term, and subtypes could be table_soccer:tecball or table_soccer:german. What do you think?

8 pin

can it be added 8pin sport? this is a different version of the 9pin played in the south of France (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quilles_de_huit in french sorry) Yod4z 11:55, 7 september 2011 (BST)

This is a wiki, just add it. --Scai 11:43, 7 September 2011 (BST)

type -> archery:type

FYI: I've suggested a change from type (on sport=archery elements) to archery:type here. --Tordanik 11:46, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

sport=roller_skating

I just tried to find the appropriate tags for an roller skating rink, and the best thing I could find is sport=roller_skating, but it's not documented on this page. Maybe we should add it? I saw there's sport=skating, but that appears to be for ice skating, and not roller skating.

Heavily flawed tagging scheme

I think the current method is heavily flawed for a bunch of reasons:

  • it makes it difficult to specify more than one sport for a place. Unfortunately - more than one sport per place is the rule and single sport areas exception.
  • it makes it hard to specify "leisure sport/activity areas" and competition-type facilities.
  • it makes it hard to distinguish designated places from places where a sport is merely possible or tolerated.

Not surprisingly, eg. the Whitewater sports use completely different tagging.

sport=kiteflying

would like to invent a value like this to mark areas that are suitable for Kiteflying. This areas differs to freeflying (like for hanggliders an paragliding). it could be very helpful to find suitable places for kites

How do such areas differ from landuse=meadow or similar? What kind of kites? RicoZ (talk) 10:56, 20 March 2014 (UTC)
