Putting OA repositories on the map

Tim Brody has done a mash-up of ROAR (Registry of Open Access Repositories) and Google Earth.  The result lets you see the worldwide distribution, and precise locations, of OA repositories.  For details, see his blog post.

Update. has a similar mash-up based on OpenDOAR rather than ROAR. The two projects are connected and roughly simultaneous; for details, see this and this.
