Bikes Count in the Big Easy: A snapshot of cycling in New Orleans
November 8 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm
In 2023, the League of American Bicyclists and Eco-Counter partnered on the third annual Bikes Count Data Competition. This year’s winning organization, the University of New Orleans (UNO) Transportation Institute, has been leading data collection efforts in New Orleans and around the state of Louisiana for over 10 years, collecting bike and pedestrian counts through a variety of research efforts and in support of local initiatives.
In New Orleans, the UNO Transportation Institute has been collaborating with the City and local bike advocacy organization, Bike Easy, to analyze and disseminate bike count data to the public – but has faced many common challenges in doing so.
Enter Eco-Counter’s Data Services team, which performed a data validation on historical bike counts, as well as spatial and temporal analysis on the permanent and short-term counts, using UNO’s data, to help tell the story of cycling in New Orleans.
Join the League of American Bicyclists, Eco-Counter, and UNO Transportation Institute for a one-hour webinar about the data challenges in New Orleans and how Eco-Counter’s Data Services Team has helped overcome them.
