Using your new data

Most users of Wikimetrics will typically use the CSV file for analyzing their data. What can you do with the CSV file?
  • Use open office spreadsheets, google spreadsheets, or some other spreadsheet program to open your CSV file.
    • You can count all the bytes added or pages created during an event.
    • You can find out who are your star editors
    • If you have a series of programs, like a series of editathons or a few classrooms with the Wikipedia Education program, you can track users over time and see how your program improves.
  • Watch this video for some guidance on how to use data from Wikimetrics in a spreadsheet program.
