Eco-Visio First Steps

Are you using Eco-Visio for the first time? Follow the guide!


To start using Eco-Visio, make sure you have completed the steps below.

Your counter is installed and you have done the following checks:

If your counter detects the direction of passage of users: you have identified which directions correspond to the IN and OUT directions.
If your counter is equipped with the automatic data transmission option: you have performed a modem test with a positive result.
If your counter has manual data reading: you have read and transferred the data to Eco-Visio with the Eco-Link software.
You have taken a picture of the counter and its environment.
You know the address or GPS coordinates of the installation site.
Step 1/3 – Confirm your e-mail address

When you first connect, a window will appear asking you to confirm your e-mail address.

Follow the instructions on the screen.



Step 2/3 – Attach your counter to a counting site

Notions of “counter” and “counting site”: explanations

On Eco-Visio, we distinguish the counter, i.e. the physical system in charge of collecting and returning data, from the counting site.

The counting site is a place where counting is carried out.

Several counters can be attached to the same counting site.


In the following example, counting is done on the two lateral bike lanes of the street. For a better understanding of data at the street level, and not at the level of each bike lane, the counters are linked to the same counting site, here named ‘Rue de Paris’.

Follow these steps to attach your counter to a counting site.

a) Click on the notification pop-up in the upper right corner.

You will be taken to the counter site management page.

Your new counter appears in the blue zone: “Non attached counters”.

b) Click “Create a new site and attach”.

c) Follow the steps on the screen. Click on “Next” at the end of each step

  • Description: enter at least the name of the counting site.

  • Location: enter the address or GPS coordinates. You can also directly position the site on the map.

  • Counting flows: the site’s counting flows are predefined according to your counter.

Examples :

For an indiscriminate bike counter, you have an indistinct bike flow.

For a pedestrian/bike counter with direction distinction, you have four flows: Pedestrians IN, Pedestrians OUT, Bikes IN, Bikes OUT.

  • Attachment date: select the date and time the counter was installed on the site.

  • Save.

Your counting site is now created.

You can view the attached counter in the ‘Equipment’ section, in the count site file:

If you have several counters to attach :

Option 1

The counters are installed on different sites

Option 2

The counters are installed on the same site

Follow exactly the same procedure. You then create a counting site per counter. In step b of the procedure, click on “Attach to an existing site”.

Step 3/3 – Analyze the data

a) Return to the home page.


Option 1

You consult the dashboard

Option 2

You do a spot analysis

As a new user, you have default dashboards: at least one dashboard to analyze the data at the level of your counter park, and one to analyze the data site by site.

If the data you are interested in is not already available on these dashboards, perform a one-off analysis (see option 2).

Click on “Analysis” to analyze data from one or more sites.

You will be able to generate a Widget from this analysis, then add the Widget to a dashboard or export it in image or spreadsheet format.


You now master the basic steps necessary to use Eco-Visio.
