Thank you 3,765 times
A big thank you to the 3,765 people who completed our user survey in February 2017. You have given us lots of solid evidence about why you value Geograph. Here's a summary of the results:

Four out of five of you are from the UK. Most of you are using Geograph to explore where you live or places you might visit, rather than for study or work. Most of you are not uploading photos onto Geograph. Over half of you are interested in heritage and in buildings, and almost half in the natural environment, maps and geography. Almost all of you would recommend Geograph to other people.
