Intro to

Do you need to estimate a crowd size at a large outdoor event such as a protest, parade, concert or other ticketless event? Then is the tool for you. Developer Anthony Catel built this “mashup” tool with Google Maps that lets you designate an area on a map, estimate how many people fit per square meter and get a crowd estimate for that designated space. It’s great for fact-checking crowd estimates from the police or event organizers, who almost always inflate the numbers.
