Abstract (German)

We propose to map the geographic distribution of contributions to Open Source Software, and to relate local open source activity with socio-economic outcomes, including digitalization and innovation. Our project will compare Vienna's open source activity with other cities and regions in Austria, Europe, and around the world.
