Communicating on site attendance and usage
Eco-Counters with the ability to distinguish between different types of users had two major positive impacts on Portofino National Park in Italy. First of all, it was a very effective way to resolve usage conflict between cyclists and pedestrians.
Prevention methods combined with pedestrian and cyclist count data helped the park prevent conflict of space between users.
On top of this, the data from the counting systems was also used to validate park attendance figures and communicate these to the public.
Count data can also be used:
- Obtain accurate data on the economic benefits of ecotourism in the jurisdiction.
- Provide partners with reports on visitation rates of your sites.
- Assist field teams with detailed visitor data.
