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:

archmap.py

All of the code to generate your own .geojson and .kml files is up on GitHub. If you have any suggestions please post them here or create an issue in the repo.

Maps

Arch Women host pre-generated .geojson and .kml files that are made by archmap.py, these files are updated daily and are used to make the maps below.

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.

Google Earth

You can add the coordinates to Google Earth permanently:

You can refresh the data by right-clicking the ArchMap folder and selecting "Refresh".
