Research on a similar initiative like Mapset

Some research has already been made, and messages sent out to a few OSM Community mailing lists but Please mention activities or projects where sport has been used as full or part of the main activities.


An initiative to engage passionate mappers, sports lovers and open data enthusiasts to use tools, like OpenStreetMap, Wikipedia, and Wikimedia Projects so that they can be used in new and innovative ways as found suitable in their areas of interest and communities.

Collaboration rather than duplication

Mapset will be providing training and capacity building to its members in usage and applicability of the above tools, plus other programs, but priority to provide the training will be given to existing organisations, communities and individuals in Uganda or outside Uganda.

Conflict of Interest

Open Data and Open Source can spur innovation and solutions to community challenges, there are quite a number of individuals and organisations who use and make open source what it is, with no limits, no restrictions, which provides a gateway to innovation, and removal of any kinds of barriers to entry.

To ensure that there is no conflict of interest, please see comments below, and feel free to reach out or add comments;

  • Collaboration will ensure there is no conflict of interest.
  • More activities for MapSet will be based on previous research initiatives and results from above.
  • Organisations that do similar or related activities will be approached and invited to join efforts with MapSet.
  • Please mention your views on how any other conflicts of interest can happen.

Data and Mapping

These are some of the [tags and data (model)] that will be based on for usage. The sport=* tag is used to identify one or more sports which can be played within or on some physical feature. A list of sports is given below.

A sport=* should normally also be associated with a suitable physical feature where it is performed; often this is leisure=pitch or leisure=track although other surfaces or features are sometimes appropriate, for example natural=beach for swimming. A leisure=sports_centre may be associated with a number of sports. Where individual sports are played at distinct identifiable places then identify the sport with the particular pitch etc. Where a number of sports are associated with a single feature then separate the sports with a ';', for example 'athletics;football'.

Primary sports facilities

Specific sports facilities

In these facilities the sport=* should not be used, since it is already stated what kind of sport.
