<p>Measuring and ranking the free software developers in a particular geographical space is a way<br>of knowing the existing community and also allows assessing the impact of certain policies in<br>the dynamics of such a community. Besides, it is interesting to try and find out why there are<br>differences from one place to the next and how these differences evolve with time. In this paper,<br>our main interest is to measure and rank the community of free software developers in Spain and<br>also check its geographical distribution. This paper measures differences by province, providing a<br>classification of provinces according to the number and type of developers present in each place.</p>
