Dustin Sampson (@gridcell), one of our geospatial developers presented the core ideas behind tracking slippy map analytics at FOSS4G in September (2014, Portland). Check out his presentation here >>>

Presentation Description

Google Analytics is a great tool for monitoring and reporting on website traffic and user interactions but what it doesnt tell you is that 75% of the time your users zoom in two levels every time they start to use your map or that external soils layer you added is taking an average three seconds to load.
