The Octocat Map
Last year Esri created an interactive map showing the percentage of GitHub users in UK cities. You can now view a map showing the popularity of GitHub around the world.
Where is GitHub most popular in the UK shows the percentage of the population using GitHub in different UK cities. What I most liked about this UK map was the use of scaled Octocat map markers to visualize the percentage of the population who are GitHub users in each city.
The new GitHub Map also uses the wonderful Octocat logo as map markers. It has also used a few other incarnations of Octocat to show the differences in the percentage of users in each city around the world.
Using the map you can view the number of GitHub users in cities around the world. The map shows the number of users in each city as a percentage of the city's population. If you click on a city's Octocat logo you can view the city's population, the number of GitHub users in the city and the percentage of the population who are GitHub users.
