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.

Screenshots

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

Maps

All of the code to generate your own .geojson file is up on GitHub. Arch Women host pre-generated .geojson and .kml files, these files are used to make the maps below.

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

OpenStreetMap

One rendering of the map is hosted by MapBox, this to be updated manually by alux importing the .geojson file.

Google Maps

To display the coordinates in Google Maps, enter this link to the .kml file into the search bar. Here is that search.
