Map of Usage of IUPAC and IUBMB Nomenclature Database
See below for Europe enlarged.
Red = > 1130 hits per million population.
Orange = 367-1130 hits per million population.
Yellow = 130-367 hits per million population.
Green = 38-130 hits per million population.
Blue = 6.0-38 hits per million population.
Violet = < 6.0 hits per million population.
This IUPAC/IUBMB Nomenclature Site now keeps a log of usage statistics composed of the numerical IP address of each computer which logs on in a 24 hour period. The total from 1996 is 234 countries from over 13800000 records. For the data from 2010 to 2012 (almost 3040000 records) an analysis of the IP addresses by geoiplookup identifies the country of origin of over 84% of IP addressses. The data was then normalised by dividing the number of records for each country by the population (in millions) and sorting into rank order. The list was divided into six hexyls which were plotted. Red = top hexyl more than 1130 records per million population; Orange = 367-1130; Yellow = 130-367; Green = 38-130; Blue = 6.0-38; and Violet = less than 6.0. Uncoloured countries have not been recorded by this database.
From February 1996 to October 2009 the analysis was based on the indicated country code (with about 22% numerical and 20% ending in .net excluded). This data indicated 226 countries from nearly 10700000 records which have been separately plotted.

The usage of each document is also logged. See the summary of statistics for 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. A summary of this data from 1996-2012 is also available. Also data for each country for 1996 to 2012. Any additional countries are listed in the country data with zero users for 1996 to 2012.
