GlassFish Around the World - Geo Map
By pelegri on Jun 07, 2007
My top 3 motivators for a software project are: quality, peer recognition and... adoption! Tracking adoption is hard but in GlassFish we can do something like PopCon by doing a reverse geo-lookup on the IPs from GF admin consoles as they retrieve the latest news. The result is a Map Mashup.
Click on the bottom left tags to switch between accumulated and monthly data. The "IP" labels represent installations, while "hits" count repeated GETs.
The data is not very precise: not everybody uses the console, proxies and fire-walls get in the way and the reverse lookup is at the ZIP level. Still, the data shows JFA's recent trip: pan/zoom to Brazil and flip between February and April.
And thanks to Jamey for the work!
