🌎 🌍 🌏 I'm working on a of servers "near me" basically mapping servers that are region-specific, as a way for folks to find Mastodon users in their region. Blue = signed on to the Mastodon Covenant, Green = I"m not sure they did.

This is my first time using so I'd be grateful of any and all feedback, and offers to collaborate - I assume I can share the map for editing somehow 🤷

Here's the link: u.osmfr.org/m/550053/

@jaz I appreciate that whatever technique of geolocation you're using is not too precise, but it's interesting that the closest named settlement to that one map marker appears to be Nitchequon, "a ghost town that was an inland trading post of the Hudson's Bay Company in the remote geographic centre of Quebec."

@zudlig yeh, I went with geo centre so I could leave room for instances dedicated to cities, especially capitals. I also don't want to give the idea that a given instance is arbitrarily bordered, so the notion is it's "near" you and has people "near" you. More a hint of regionality than defined national borders or city vs rural etc.
