Mouse over a dot to see the name of that country in the tool tip. The + (plus) and – (minus) signs allow you to zoom in or out on the map. The table below the map shows percentage of client traffic from each of those countries: the green up arrows indicate that traffic is increasing; the percentage in green indicates the percentage increase in client traffic since the last data was sampled; and the percentage in black indicates the percentage of traffic each of the counties accounts for in total client traffic.
  • Device—This part of the page shows the types of devices that the clients are using, the percentage increase in the use of each of the devices since the last data was sampled, and the percentage of a type of device among all devices that are used.
  • Browser—This part of the page shows the web browsers that the clients are using, the percentage increase in the use of each of the browsers, and the percentage of each of the browsers among all browsers that are used.
