2017-04-12 - Modelling Events, Activities


We discussed this short doc (1.5 pages) that outlines a proposal for developing a shared activity list as part of this groups activities:
  • Consensus was that a shared, hierarchical list would be both feasible to create and useful
  • Need to properly scope the content of the list and approach iteratively, e.g. limit depth
  • List needs to be versioned
  • List needs to be updated on a regular schedule, perhaps 6-12 months
  • Sport England and SportSuite lists can be used to seed the first version, merging them where appropriate
  • We need to develop some clear editorial guidance to help focus and drive development of the list
  • Aim for a phase one with limited detail, then expand as/when necessary
We reviewed EMD data capture fields:
  • Jade stepped us through the fields that EMD use to describe events
  • Disability support for events has been reviewed by Interactive, so follows best practice
  • A number of fields useful for booking/event attendance that we should consider adding
  • Jade: to share EMD activity list
  • Leigh/Jade/Kim/Becky/Nick: coordinate on creating initial version of the list
  • All: provide feedback on the primer and specification
