The ACTRIS Data Centre has recently released a report briefing on ACTRIS data provision and use during the period 2015-2020.

The latest report interestingly presents the use and distribution of data (Figure 1).

During 2020 a total of 33525 datasets1 were downloaded from 41 different countries. Map
