Eco-Visio Weather Module

Analysis module to capture the impact of weather on bike and pedestrian count data

Benefits :
  • Predict daily and monthly demand
  • Explain Anomalies in Count Data
  • Capture seasonal trends
  • Inform infrastructure maintenance practices

The Eco-Visio Weather Module allows you to overlay site-specific weather data on top of your count data, quickly capturing complex, indepth trends in bike and pedestrian count data.

Overview

Our latest Eco-Visio Weather Module features a whole new look and seamlessly integrates into our Eco-Visio 5 data analysis platform. In this new version, a wider variety of weather data points are offered, and data is even more geographically specific! The weather module offers precise, counter-specific meteorological data, including a wide-variety of indicators, such as: Cloud cover, Snowfall, Temperature, Humidity, Rainfall, Wind speed, gusts & direction.

Weather indicators are available on an hourly basis, with the exception for snowfall, where the data represents total daily snowfall. Weather data is updated on a daily basis, and historical weather data is available immediately for all counters. From discreet trail counters on remote mountain trails to ZELT bike counters on downtown bike lanes, precise weather data is available for counters anywhere in the world. Weather data is specific to the location of each counter, and therefore varies across your counting sites!

Calgary: using data to track and evaluate weather impacts

The City of Calgary, Canada, uses meteorological data to capture the impact of weather on winter cycling rates. At the Peace Bridge, warm temperatures and reduced precipitation had a strong positive impact on cycling demand for the month of November.

Houston : high temperatures decrease bike use

In Houston, the climate is made of extreme heat in the summer with heavy rain. Weather and count data suggests that recreational cycling is more common than commuter cycling. During the summer months, the peak hourly cycling period coincides with sunrise and sunset, when the temperature is lower and shade is more common.

Montreal : extreme weather influences bike demand

Counts taken from an on-street bike lane in the city-center and cross-referenced with local weather data in Montreal show a clear correlation between bad weather (heavy rainfall and snow, and low temperatures) and a decrease of bike usage, but also the positive impact of snow clearing operations on bike usage.
