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.
Here's a screenshot of how it used to look:
You can add the coordinates to Google Earth permanently:
- Right click on "My Places"
- Go to Add -> Network Link
- Enter ArchMap into the Name field and put
https://archwomen.org/media/archmap/archmap.kmlinto the Link field. Then press OK.
You can refresh the data by right-clicking the ArchMap folder and selecting "Refresh".
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.
