CounterPoint App

January 13, 2014

Ready to count traffic? CounterPoint makes it easy. Count bikes, count pedestrians, count cars, count people in wheelchairs..and more!

CounterPoint’s users are helping to plan a better future for everyone, just by counting traffic. It relies on crowdsourcing and, like Wikipedia, is an amazingly reliable and easy way to gather important data.

All of the data is yours to download, analyse and share. You get instant graphs every count. Come back to the same spot next year to compare!

Developed by Canadian non-profit Green Action Centre, CounterPoint aims to make traffic counting easier and comparable everywhere. Each count you do adds to what we know about all kinds of traffic (not just cars). The important data generated by counterpoint users will help plan better bike lanes, monitor safer school zones, make stronger cases for new crosswalks and more!

BIT students helped to created the web application version of CounterPoint in 2012 and a prototype for an Android application in 2014.
