San Luis Sports Map


Description

The digital policy of San Luis government has enabled development and innovation in different areas, allowing for the first time in the field of physical education and sports, the same deployment of digitalization in the field with the project called "Provincial Sports Map", which aims to evaluate and graph the physical fitness of 6th grade children of the province (8,462), establishing the sports average as a general objective and detecting potential and sporting talents as a specific objective. This ambitious plan can be executed thanks to simultaneous access to an application loaded on a tablet that allows the capture and registration of data obtained from a series of evaluations, which are derived to the provincial Data Center, generating the necessary statistics for the training and execution of the plan. This can only be achieved in a province where access to the Internet is guaranteed throughout its territory in such a way that the inequality gap between those who live in the largest cities is shortened with those who are at a greater distance.
