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.

The current version was started by alux with help from kyrias and fsckd.


Here are some screenshots of how it used to look: is a python script that can generate GeoJSON, KML and CSV files by parsing this list of Arch Linux users.

Note: ArchMap is currently under development on GitHub. If you have any suggestions, please post them here or create an issue in the repository.
