Lorraine mentioned it would be interesting to see browser stats for different geographical locations.
So being a little stats mad and keen for a challenge I have updated the stats page to show browsers and OS by country.
This only shows the members for the last few days since that is when I started collecting the new stat data.
While playing around I also managed to generate a map with the locations of members plotted.
This is a static version of the location of members since I started collecting IP addresses.
It's great to see we have members from all over the world.
Sorry Kiwi's your sort of half of the map
Basically it looks up all the ip addresses then looks up the city name, longitude an latitude values and plots them on the map.
It takes a while to generate so I may make a version that only looks up say the last 100 members dynamically. For now the static version is it.
Thanks to hostip.info for providing the downloadable database.
The DB is pretty big so consider space issues and alternatives if you are thinking of doing something similar on limited space.
Wow... that's terrific.
Who da daddy?
Have a look at IE in the "Browser % by Visitor" stats from 47% in November down to
38% now. That's a substantial drop.
Once more stats are collected the others will show better results.
Owoooga... Tony, I'm impressed. I visit here in spurts but you're always building on the basic "message board" theme and you pull it off quite well. If that script gets any better Bush and his friends are gonna pull you off to an underground laboratory to find some of those WMD things.

Yes someone needs to hunt them out and destoy them... the Evil that is Webpages of Mediocre Design!!
I'll get my coat... TAXI :oops:
Love the map . . . such a great idea.
I would just like to know who it is rowing across the Atlantic.
Let Someone Else Make Your Map
It is possible to let someone else make your map:
on my blog and it works great.
That looks great, I like the way it uses a clustering algorithm to group hits.
I like the challenge of doing things myself, it's a great way to learn.
