Wikiscan, located at https://Wikiscan.org, is a website which produces and displays independent statistics on Wikipedia and other wikis hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF). Wikiscan was created in 2011, and is hosted on the servers of Wikimedia France. As of August 2018, Wikiscan generates statistics from 362 separate wiki sites of the WMF.
The Wikiscan software source code is made available under GNU General Public License version 2 (GPL v2), and the two latest versions of Wikiscan can be downloaded from the Wikiscan about page. The displayed content generated by Wikiscan (except its logo) is published under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 (deed France) (CC BY-SA 3.0/fr). It uses public data made freely available from the relevant MediaWiki API for each individual wiki, together with pageview files from Wikistats to generate pictorial graphs of statistics.
Individual reports of Wikiscan outputs are located at sub-domains of https://Wikiscan.org. Being as Wikiscan primarily concentrates on the various language versions of Wikipedia, the Wikiscan URLs mirror the individual language abbreviation for the Wikiscan sub-domain identifier; for example, the Wikiscan URL for the English Wikipedia is https://en.Wikiscan.org, the Norwegian Wikipedia Wikiscan URL is https://no.Wikiscan.org, the Chinese Wikipedia Wikiscan URL is https://zh.Wikiscan.org, etc. Other Wikimedia Foundation project wikis are configured with their language abbreviation merged in front of their project name; so the English Wiktionary is found at https://enwiktionary.Wikiscan.org, the English Wikiversity is at https://enwikiversity.Wikiscan.org, the English Wikibooks is located at https://enwikibooks.Wikiscan.org, English Wikisource is at https://enwikisource.Wikiscan.org, and English Wikinews will be found at https://enwikinews.Wikiscan.org. The other language versions of the various projects mirror the English examples, but the notable exceptions are the multilingual wikis; Wikimedia Commons is found at https://commons.Wikiscan.org, whereas Wikimedia Wikidata is found at https://wikidata.Wikiscan.org, and so on.

The Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the wiki company and non-profit charitable organization responsible for a very large number (over 900 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed by themselves, known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' major wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikinews (news source), Wikiversity (open learning community), Wikispecies (free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (shared repository for documents, images, videos, and other media files), Wikidata (central space knowledge base for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (coordination of issues common to all Wikimedia projects). The Foundations' global reach is nurtured in its Incubator, where all new language versions for all projects are initiated and developed before being rolled out. Its most recent major project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.
