Overview of top 10 most popular mapped sport facilities
Cricket? In Yorkshire?!
Gaelic Games in Ireland with the same colours shows *much* more gaelic games facilities mapped in Ireland compared to cricket facilities. Hon the parish!
Rugby (Union). Munster Rugby making a strong showing.
Rugby League, with the same scales. Clearly it's not as popular in OSM as rugby union
In OSM, there seems to be a high number of golf clubs mapped around Inverness, Scotland
The English West Midlands seems to be dominating the horsey set

If you make any interesting maps, please let me know. 🙂
@rory "soccer"? can you do that one again with football :)
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 ah I see now, that makes sense!
@wolfie Here's one where each inner map uses the same scale
@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
@wolfie horsey people? In the South East of England?! I'm SHOCKED, I tell you! /s 😛😛
@rory hehe I never rode myself but I did do my year 10 work experience week at a stables 😅
