OpenStreetMap

OSM usage by country

Posted by pnorman on 22 November 2022 in English (English).

I gathered some statistics about usage of the website and tiles in 2022Q3.

I looked at total tile.osm.org usage, tile.osm.org usage from osm.org itself, osm.org visits, and osm.org unique visitors.

Here’s the data for the top 20 countries.

So German users view 3x as many tiles per visit on osm.org compared to US-american users.

RU and UA a bit higher that I expected. Thats maybe connected to sanctions (unavailability of other map providers) and all those “war maps” using OSM tiles…
