Maybe I am missing something but, while you can geolocate anonymous contributors (well to
the extent you can reliably geolocate any IP address), you cannot geolocate logged-in
users. Of course the WMF servers do know the IP addresses used by the logged-in users but
this is suppressed for privacy reasons. So either you are seeing data based only on
anonymous users (which is unlikely to be a representative sample) or the WMF have chosen
to compile and release this data set. There is no way anyone else could compile the
geolocations of all contributions.
So I am curious what the 2014 data you are pointing us to really represents.

I am new to this mailing list, and a new researcher so apologies if this is not the right
mailing list for this question, but I hope you might be able to help me.

users but with newer data, I was hoping year 2018 data that I can then average per month,
although it doesn’t have to be a Calendar year I suppose, it could be Feb-2018 to
The key is that I would like newer data. I have looked at the sources of these maps, and
they all seem to end in 2013 or 2014. This source got me close, but has no Edit data, only
Could anyone help me in finding the right dataset to recreate this map? (Image too heavy
to be sent in email)
