Heading to Washington, D.C. this weekend to take part in the Transportation Research Board’s 96th Annual Meeting? It’s a great opportunity to learn about the latest research and best practices in active transportation data. Eco-Counter will be at Booth 523 to share our expertise and engage in discussions. We also have some top picks for bike-ped data events!
Bike Hack Night, held in conjunction with TRB, is a must-see for all “transportation techies”! Don’t miss a presentation on Tuesday, January 10th by Eco-Counter’s Fraser McLaughlin on bicycle traffic patterns in Arlington revealed through cluster analysis. Simply RSVP on Meetup.com to attend. If you can’t make Bike Hack Night, you can learn more about cluster analysis in Hall E on Monday with Fraser at our research poster on estimating daily bike volumes from short-term counts.
Eco-Counter’s Jean-Francois Rheault will be presenting as the Industry Representative at Quality Volume Data for Bicycling and Walking (Workshop 158) on Sunday from 1:30pm – 4:30pm. Attend to learn more about quality issues in data related to active transportation.
Big data and managing large amounts of information will be a hot topic at TRB 2017.

Advances in data collection for active transportation will also be discussed Session 285, Exploring Innovative Data Sources and Approaches for Bicycle and Pedestrian Data Collection on Monday 10:15am – 12pm.
