Europe! Are You On the Map?

Hello friendly Ubuntu cartographers. I know you've all been waiting for this one!

My quest to map every Ubuntu group in the world lands on Europe today.

Are you living in Europe somewhere? If your country is shaded orange, there is an Ubuntu group present.

Is your country represented?
Is your province (or state)?
Is your city (or town)?

Ubuntu can and should be everywhere in Europe. There should be solid orange in every country, and lots and lots of city dots. There are countries without Ubuntu groups. And with the exception of our friends in Russia, city based groups are notably absent.

On a positive note, I'm loving the regional teams in Spain and the Netherlands. Great work! And wow, Russia! You know how to light up cities.

Let's get a hundred or so more cities in Europe going.

If you're reading this and notice you're not "on the map", then I'm here to help you get on it. Please send me an email and

Let me know!


Saint Petersburg, Omsk, and Novosibirsk are city-based Ubuntu groups in Russia.
Kuban, Friesland, Galicia, and Asturias are regional Ubuntu groups.

Where did I get the data?
Inkscape rocks!


Do you know about Perm and Moscow group in Russia?
And why in list Russian LoCo in Asia, and on Map in Europe? :)


Thanks! I do now.

Are you referring to
Perm: and
Moscow: ?

Neither of these are on the loco portal, which is why they weren't included. Perm would likely need to change their team to an Ubuntu team (rather than a LUG) in order to be included. Moscow should be an easy one though. If the team contact sends an email to the LoCo council, s/he can get the team on

The Russian (country) team should appear in both continents, since technically it spans both. Confusing.
