Recently ViaStrada assisted with the development and presentation of NZTA's first webinar on walking & cycling topics, namely measuring and monitoring these active modes. Glen Koorey oversaw the project coordination and MC'd the webinar, while John Lieswyn presented on technologies available for monitoring. They were joined by Bridget Burdett (MRCagney, measuring walking) and Courtney Groundwater (Abley, monitoring cycling), with Claire Pascoe (NZTA) providing a sponsor's overview.
At least 150 people tuned in to view the presentations and to ask questions throughout it. The resulting (free) webinar is now available for viewing and listening to. Note that you’ll need to install Adobe Connect on your browser to make it work; this link will test that your system is good to go. Due to some audio issues encountered, John’s presentation was re-recorded so that you can hear an uninterrupted version of his talk.
Following are the links to the recordings.
