Our Streets Chorlton’s ‘Data Champions’ – traffic data collection training
September 13, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm BST
As part of Our Streets Chorlton, Open Data Manchester will be carrying out data monitoring and collection, including air quality measurements and traffic surveys.
We are helping to form a local group of ‘Data Champions‘, as part of the wider Our Street Chorlton Champions group development, to help carry out traffic surveys, along with other community data collection. These traffic surveys will help us to collect baseline data throughout the initial year-long Our Streets Chorlton project.
If you’re a resident of the Chorlton area and are up for taking an active part in the collection of traffic data, then we’re running a series of training sessions in June, to contribute to our collection days in June and July.
The training sessions will cover:
- Counting traffic data using an electronic device.
- Counting traffic data without a smart device (ie pen and paper).
- Best practice for collection, including COVID safety.
We will then be carrying our a traffic survey on on Burrows Avenue on Thursday 16 September. Don’t worry if you can’t make this date – there’ll be other opportunities to take part!
Register on Eventbrite here.
If you are interested in taking part but cannot attend these workshops please email Sam Milsom sam[@]opendatamanchester[.]org[.]uk.
What is Our Streets Chorlton?
Our Streets Chorlton is a 12-month, community-led project to understand how to help decrease carbon emissions by enabling Chorlton people to reduce local and short car journeys. We are here to support Chorlton on its journey to tackle climate change.
We want to co-develop our project with the whole Chorlton community so that together, we can share a greener, cleaner, less polluted and congested place to live, work, rest, learn and play.
The community engagement project is supporting the development of local champions in and around Chorlton with areas of people’s interest; schools, climate action and data gathering.
If you are interested in any of the areas and getting more involved, get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org.
