Density

 

Get crowd data right.

Following disputes over how many people attended Trump’s inauguration, there is an impetus on journalists to provide verified crowd data. Density is a cool too that can help you do so.

Once installed, the tool allows you to measure anonymous movement as people come and go, and generate real-time and historical data that can be integrated anywhere.

Data is accessed through the tool’s API, which is built upon REST, returns JSON responses, and supports cross-origin resource sharing.

To query the API, only a few endpoints are used – to indicate the space, event, or doorway – so the tool isn’t restricted to advanced coders.

Or alternatively, Density can also be set up to provide data updates via email.

So the next time you’re reporting on an event, verify your crowd numbers with Density.
