    Is there any database online where a person could see examples of the data recorded by professional players GPS tags?

    Just to get an idea of ground covered by each position relative to another position etc.

    I think the teams would like to keep a lot of that data internal. Publishing it could expose them if opponents had accurate measurements of player performance.

    It would be good if they could all agree to share it anonymously so the averages could be made available.

    Depending on the software/company you can. For example you can compare yourself to pro players for certain things like top speed and distance travelled during the match. However these stats are not available unless published.

    There are a number of scientific papers on it.

    Have a search around google scholar.
