Download Statistics

Download statistics are presented for each institution currently registered to use Landmap, including number of downloads of Landmap data per institution on a year by year basis from 2001 - 2013. Equivalent Value For Money (EVFM) is included highlighting the cost of the sum total of downloads would have been if bought from a commercial online supplier. How this has been calculated and other related information is provided in the notes section below.

Table 1: Total number of downloads from Landmap per institution for each year from 2001 - 2013. Note that figures for 2012 - 2013 represent the first quarter of the year only. Equivalent Value for Money (EVFM) was calculated following the method given in the notes section. Grand totals include number of downloads per institution for all years and number of downloads by all institutions per year.

NOTES

We have added a last column which indicates the Equivalent Value for Money (EVFM). The EVFM was calculated by arriving to an average price for a download activity. We analysed the download activity of the last 2 years consecutively the following assumptions were made

  • Only downloads from our website are used for the calculation.
  • Value for money was calculated for the equivalent price each download would have been from a commercial online supplier including any possible discounts for academic use or for big orders.
  • Data not available as individual supplies but as part of an annual license agreement were reduced in value to lowest possible value.
  • Data that can be obtained from other sources, or users can obtain some equivalent free data, are calculated as 0 value.
  • Data downloads that are very big in size and value were reduced in value and calculated as if it is a minimum purchase from a commercial suppliers.

Institutional data supplies which were not recorded through our webpages are not included. For Example we have supplied via FTP data for many projects and individuals, equivalent to thousands of downloads, are not included in the calculations which would increase the average price of a download. FTP supply was done as projects that required substantial amounts of data. Projects and individuals would have had to spend an inordinate amount of time downloading, in some cases weeks. These include:

  • University of Leeds
  • University of Wales Institute, Cardiff
  • University of Southampton
  • University of Manchester
  • University of Lancaster
  • University College London
  • University of Birmingham
  • University of Lancaster
  • University of Central Lancashire
  • University of Sheffield
  • University of Nottingham
  • Salford University
  • University of Liverpool
  • Manchester Metropolitan University
  • University of Reading
  • University of Glasgow
  • University of West England Bristol
  • Royal Holloway, London
  • University of Salford
  • University of Cardiff
  • Royal Holloway, London

The average value of an individual download for the year 2011 was £294/download; the average value for the year 2012 was £320/download. The value for money calculation used in the table was £300/download. Study of the download patterns suggests that some institutions download patterns reflect lack of awareness of the huge increase in Landmap datasets and their potential for teaching and research. Recent increased activities of some sites are related to Architecture and Urban Studies students discovering essential data for their research and project work.
