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.
