Understanding the LinkFree map

This area will describe the linkfree map and answer common questions.


In addition to the tech listed in the readme, the map utilizes open source mapping library LeafletJS and Nominatum by Open Street Map for retrieving Lat/Long values.

How do I add myself to the map?

The map data is based on your GitHub profile location. This data is refreshed every 7 days. If you have recently updated your GitHub profile, please wait for the data to refresh until after this period of time.

I have a location in my profile and it has been longer than 7 days but I still do not see myself.

Test the Nominatum API endpoint with your exact profile location to see if it returns a value If yes, you may ask in Discord for someone to take a look

How can I contribute to this map?
