Analyzing dataset usage

Go to the Catalog > Datasets page. There is a Monitoring link for each dataset.

There are seven indicators:

  1. Actions: Frequency and distribution of actions (analyze, geo, search) taken by users based on API calls. It gives you precious information about what your users do and how to serve them better. Remember that, like with every chart on Opendatasoft, you can filter the variables displayed (Analyze, Geo, or Search) by clicking on the legend labels.

Actions
  1. Total users: Estimated number of unique users who interacted with the domain

Total users
  1. API calls per user: on average, API calls per user.

API calls per user
  1. Total record searches: Number of searches in the dataset

Total record searches
  1. Text searches

  2. API call sources: Distribution of the API call per page based on the number of API calls.

API call sources
  1. Map of API calls: The map is based on the geolocation of IP addresses. It gives a good idea of the geographical distribution of usage. However, it can be quite imprecise and may yield false geolocations.
