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

History

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.

OpenStreetMap

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.

Screenshots
