[OSM-talk] View data

One of my current research projects[1] looks at OpenStreetMap and we're
interested in knowing the number of views for different regions in North
America (with North America as defined by Geofabrik[2]). This kind of data
does not appear to be readily available, but maybe we've been looking in
the wrong places?

I'm mostly familiar with Wikimedia data, where anonymised view logs all
pages in all projects (Wikipedia, Wikibooks, Wikisource, etc) are
downloadable[3].  In this case I'm looking for something similar in OSM,
but for views of tiles.  Just like the Wikimedia data, we're not looking
for any information about users (IP addresses, browser info, etc).  Is
there any place to get this kind of information for OSM?  Would appreciate
any help with this.
