* please note that due to technical reasons, statistics for MS Maps NMPi were not collected fully during April, May, June & July.

Pages: The total number of individual web site pages that has been requested by all users during all sessions. Pages are independent of the aggregation level.

Users = The number of unique individuals (or devices) that have accessed the site in the given period (e.g. if data are summarised monthly, then it is the unique number of people in the given month. The same user may have visited the site in a separate month and will be counted again for this month. But if data were aggregated on an annual basis, this user would only count as one)

Sessions = The number of times the site was visited. Each session consists of the entire period spend browsing the site pages until a user leaves the site or close the web browser. Sessions are independent of the aggregation level.
