I see. We are not looking to have individual edit history with IP by
location, but aggregated per city for each year. I believe that this
aggregation could be anonymised?
Unfortunately, what we mean is that, even aggregated, this data could still
be used to identify people. This is because you could combine multiple
data sources and infer a lot, especially from very active editors on
If that's not a possibility, can we get aggregated
edits at the country
Actually, what Toby was describing above was at a country level. Even that
is too sensitive to do broadly. But we are looking at figuring out how to
publish aggregated data that is "aggregated enough". Which means we have
to determine at what point the different streams of information we have can
not be used in combination to attack a person's identity. As a side note,
city geolocation is only 80% accurate from what I heard last, and it's
especially inaccurate in places like India. So if you do end up using
anonymous IP geolocation you should take a deeper look into that.
