ROS Community Metrics

We measure aspects of the ROS community to understand and track the impact of our work and identify areas for improvement. We take inspiration from the MeeGo Project's metrics.

Related: a crowd-sourced map of ROS users around the world.

Ohloh Metrics: Ohloh provides metrics on open source code repositories. See ros stack metrics and follow the related links to see other stacks.

Website with Visualization

https://metrics.ros.org hosts fine grain visualizations of various metrics from the ROS hosting services.


We periodically publish a metrics report that provides a quantitative view of the ROS community. We expect to publish a report quarterly, though more automation in the data gathering steps could make it feasible to do more frequently.

We're collectively learning what to measure and how. Please provide feedback! Add your suggestions on how to improve these reports below, or post them to http://discourse.ros.org/c/site-feedback.
