The monitoring numbers reported as part of the progress monitoring of EMODnet performance are collected using different monitoring tools (e.g. Matomo, Awstats, Google Analytics, etc.) which use different technical approaches and which each have their strengths and shortcomings. Therefore, results are indicative and care should be taken with interpreting absolute numbers or comparing results from different tools. It is often more sensible to consider trends over time collected by the same monitoring tool.
