We had a "heat-map" of committers in the old commit-digest:
https://commit-digest.kde.org/issues/2014-11-16/
So yes, it makes sense.

Also, for example:
https://www.debian.org/devel/developers.loc

If it's not for the fact that sysadmin want to replace identity, a custom 
field there with the city and/or coordinates and some script to grab them, 
convert into geojson, and it's really easy (read: few lines of code) to setup 
a map with leaflet.
