Dear All,

Visits to the Jisc funded  GB3D Type Fossil Online database website -  - have grown consistently since the site was launched in 2013 (see below). GB3D is a database of British fossil species type specimens held in British collections, and is used by both academics and the public. It is noted for its high resolution images and stereo pairs (anaglyphs), and also for over 2000 downloadable 3d digital fossil models. It is a particularly image and metadata rich database.

I am trying to find some similar collections database website statistics to benchmark against. Can anyone help, or point me to any publically available statistics?

Many thanks,
