Reason: The archmap (third version) is offline (Discuss in Talk:ArchMap#)

The ArchMap project creates a map of Arch Linux users all over the world.


ArchMap was originally created by xterminus. He created jpeg files that could be downloaded from this page. However, he didn't have the time to maintain them anymore, so he dropped the project.

When Google Earth for Linux was released, brain0 recreated the project.

The third version of ArchMap was based on Google Maps.

ArchMap is now developed in the open on GitHub, this iteration was started by alux.


One rendering of the map is hosted by MapBox

The ArchMap on Mapbox has to be updated manually by alux but all of the code to generate your own .geojson file is up on GitHub. The repo also contains pre-generated .geojson and .kml files.

If you have any suggestions please post them here or create an issue in the repo.


Here's a screenshot of how it used to look:

List yourself

Go to the ArchMap List page and use the Edit button to add yourself to the World Map. Use decimal coordinates; positive numbers mean north and east, negative numbers mean south and west, resp. The comment is optional.

The maps are regenerated whenever there has been some activity on the list.
