Pedestrian Counting System - Past Hour (counts per minute)

Current issue 23/09/2020 Please note: Sensors 67, 68 and 69 are showing duplicate records. We are currently working on a fix to resolve this.

This dataset contains minute by minute directional pedestrian counts for the last hour from pedestrian sensor devices located across the city. The data is updated every 15 minutes and can be used to determine variations in pedestrian activity throughout the day. The sensor_id column can be used to merge the data with the Sensor Locations dataset which details the location, status and directional readings of sensors. Any changes to sensor locations are important to consider when analysing and interpreting historical pedestrian counting data. Note this dataset may not contain a reading for every sensor for every minute as sensor devices only create a record when one or more pedestrians have passed underneath the sensor. The Pedestrian Counting System helps us to understand how people use different city locations at different times of day to better inform decision-making and plan for the future. A representation of pedestrian volume which compares each location on any given day and time can be found in our Online Visualisation.
