Draw visitor maps

With our Maps module, you can display the acticity log data in a Map graphic, to know where did your visitors come from.

Starting with Content Statistics version 1.6, the user activity can be Geolocated using IP geolocation, which will allow you to draw maps and apply location filters (like Country filter) to your results, to narrow down the information.

The information you can display is all the same that in our other modules (article views, document downloads, user registrations...), with the same possible filters (category, etc) and timeframe (last X days, months, years).

You will be able to display information grouped in:

  • Countries
  • States
  • Cities
You will be able to display the results in a World-wide map, or display the info for a particular Country or a Region (Continent or Subcontinent):
  • Northern Africa
  • Western Africa
  • Middle Africa
  • Eastern Africa
  • Southern Africa
  • Northern Europe
  • Western Europe
  • Eastern Europe
  • Southern Europe
  • Northern America
  • Caribbean
  • Central America
  • South America
  • Central Asia
  • Eastern Asia
  • Southern Asia
  • South-Eastern Asia
  • Western Asia
  • Australia and New Zealand
  • Melanesia
  • Micronesia
  • Polynesia
You can narrow down the search to a unique Country, and display the info of States or Cities in it (not available in all countries). For instance, "Know visitors from the different states of United States of America".

GeoLocation in our Extended version

In the backend, you can see, entry by entry, where your users came from. You can filter the results by country and see their state and city:

Setting up IP geolocation

In order to start tracking Geolocation information, it's necessary that you are running at least Content Statistics 1.6. You will need to sign up for a (free) API key at IPInfoDB.com

  1. Go to http://www.ipinfodb.com/register.php and sign up for a free API key
  2. Go to your joomla backend -> plugin manager, and open the "System - Content Statistics" plugin
  3. In version 1.6, you will find 2 new parameters in this module. You will need to copy your API key and set the "Use IP GeoLocation to ON":
  4. Save the plugin
  5. To display maps, you will need to install our new Content Statistics (MAPS) module.

Data accuracy

The geolocation is obtained based on the IP from the computer, and cross-relating this information with IPinfoDB.com database.

The accuracy is said to be over 99.5% on a country level and around 60% on a city level for the US within a 25 mile radius.
