Matomo (previously Piwik) is a website statistics and analytics tool, similar to , but open source, and deployable to your own server. OpenStreetMap uses this on the main web front end, to gather stats on traffic and user flow. Some folks are able to login to our Matomo server at https://piwik.openstreetmap.org to view the resulting stats displays.

Matomo is deployed since at least December 2011. It was claimed that the program operated on the main webpage and the wiki. However, this information was never confirmed. In 2013, Matomo was present on the main web front end only. It could work with this wiki, but it is not used here. The current configuration makes use of many plugins.
