Is there a map of users, something like a google map with pins?

2 Answers 2


I created one here:

Feb 2014 users map

This only shows the 46.5% of 13,754 total users that have a location value. Several locations are just the country name, hence the larger blue circles in the middle of the various countries.

Unfortunately, it's not live, so we'd have to update it periodically (or find some heatmap map thing that can take in a CSV URL).

How to create the map:

  1. Run Location Popularity query: http://data.stackexchange.com/diy/query/edit/170954
  2. Download CSV
  3. Upload to http://www.openheatmap.com/
  4. I used these settings: enter image description here

None that I'm aware of. And many users don't include their location in their profile, so any implementation would be partial at best.

  • geolocated IPs?

    @Mikey - that would involve SE releasing information which could potentially identify individuals who would otherwise have remained anonymous. It's not something SE is ever going to do.

  • @ChrisF - not that I don't like to argue a point, but I'll abandon this. Thanks all for putting up with my bad Q.

  • @Mikey it's not a bad question, just one that your not going to get an answer to that you'll like.

  • Agreed, nothing wrong with asking the question. IP's, email addresses, and other private user data are not released to the public by SE. And I agree with ChrisF that data extrapolated from private user data will likely be giving the same protections by SE.

  • Am I the only that is curious about this? DIY projects pretty regional in terms of jargon and viable techniques. Just saying, but moving forward. Thanks again.
