Find the #software to make that here: https://technomancy.org/openstreetmap/heatmaps/sport-ireland-britain/
If you make any interesting maps, please let me know. 🙂
Caveat: #OSM data is very uneven. There can be places/cities/regions which have much more data. There's plenty of pitches mapped which don't have a `sport` attribute/key ( warning big slow query https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/TjQ )
@rory fair enough that they use soccer on there but I thought the national sport would've had a lot more heat, I guess cos it's more often just played casually in recreation grounds that aren't specifically marked as "for football"
@wolfie Perhaps it's not a great visualization, because for each sport, the colours are relative to the min/max of that value. A place with an unusually large 'score' throws the scales, so most of the map isn't very noticable.
Here's `sport=soccer` with the same scales as in the `sport=gaelic_games` map.
@rory thank you for this, it's all very interesting 😄 seeing the south coast heat spot for equestrian as well tallies with my experience growing up there lol
