Our map wasn't updated for some years and some stuff is shown wrong or is incomplete.
Unfortunately our map generator (https://github.com/piwik/piwik-map-generator) is outdated and doesn't work anymore.

We either should try to get the old generator working again or look out for some completely new maps.

Would be awesome if we would find some volunteer for this project, as we currently have more important issues and won't be able to handle this soon.

Summary of Issues that should be resolved with new maps:
#11266, #10963, #10123, #9719, #9170, #321, #13347 and maybe others

Adding to the issue board: Hong Kong and Macao are missing from the map (not in either World/Asia/China view). I guess the same goes to a few European city-size country/regions as well, e.g. the Holy See. How about moving to Highmaps (and add an option to allow non-commercial users to switch to it).

Their license is not compatible with the GNU/GPL so we can't use it

I dunno if you're interested but why overhelming the project with map building (going outside the matter of analytics) while there are already good mapping projects outta there?

I mean can be interesting having a ready made map based on leaflet.js filled with OpenStreetMap open data, or maybe a d3-geo based project?

@tassoman I don't know any specifics yet, but using one of those is pretty much what is planned.

@tassoman yes 99% likely we will use some existing solution as building a maps is a project in itself which we don't want to do. Better for us to focus on analytics :)

There is also https://github.com/markmarkoh/datamaps (based on d3 though) and https://github.com/10bestdesign/jqvmap and a few other ones.
