Counting hikers on trails is essential for effectively managing natural areas. Eco-Counter's trail counters provide visitor use management to obtain accurate attendance figures by hour, day, week, season or year. Using Eco-Visio, Eco-Counter's online data analysis platform, it is easy to analyze count data by any time period, to cross-reference attendance figures with meteorological data, and to compare hiking trail use with parking attendance data.
The data collected from our outdoor people counter systems can be used to help preserve sensitive sites, anticipate trail erosion, measure the impact of visitors on fauna and flora, and dedicate the required resources according to the actual attendance. The data can also be used to communicate key attendance figures to the public and other partners.
Eco-Counter offers a range of counting solutions, including our MULTI system that distinguishes between up to four different types of users: pedestrians, cyclists, equestrians and ATVs. The data from this type of system has been used by many of our clients to manage conflicts between different user types.
