Open Source Index & Mapping Project

The Open Source Index Project explores open source software hotspots around the world through the interactive Open Source Index (OSI), based on 2008 research conducted by the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in collaboration with Red Hat. The OSI is a measure of the open source activity and environment in 75 countries. Each country is given a score based on its policies, practices, and other data in the fields of Government, Industry, and Community. The data is effectively displayed on an Open Source Activity Map.
