Welcome to

Counts and Weather - Daily counts and the high for the day
Trending Averages - Rolling monthly average for each counter.
Individual Daily Graphs - Each installation measured in trips/hr.
Cumulative Counts - Cumulative totals since January 1, 2015.
Data Examples - Counts from each installation with hourly weather informations.

For more details on what data is available please check out the README on GitHub

Thanks to the City of Calgary, Eco-Counter, and Environment Canada for making the data available.

The graphs are generated by Grafana with Graphite/Whisper being used as the data store, and Python scripts to scrape the data. Scripts and how it is set up is available on GitHub.

There are a couple caveats; Grafana will sometimes bin results so the daily counts are off by 1 or 2 and the extra 1 or 2 are in they day before or day after. The other is that while the dashboards are set to correct for the browser - daylight savings time means the hourly and 15 minutes graphs appear an hour earlier than reality. (MDT = -6, instead of -7).
