Want to have an event outdoors and wonder how many people would fit in the selected area??Yes we can guess or use suggested or use areas that are known or points of interest this new app aims to make event organisers visually get an idea of what an area can hold simply by drawing a perimeter on your device,sounds handy?? Not only is it used for just this purpose it can be used for property,construction and parks and so on. What is good here is this app can be used anywhere in the world, Sadly for now its just on iOS…
CrowdSize uses Apple Maps to produce an aerial view of any location in the world and operates in portrait mode. First type in the location of your event, or use the voice recognition feature on your keypad, and zoom into it’s exact location. Next tap the perimeter outline of the area you want to study, then use the slider to select a light, medium or dense factor for the number of people you see. Press Done and that’s it. The approximate number of people within your perimeter is presented. You can clear the calculation and the perimeter you just drew by shaking the device if you want to produce a new calculation.
CrowdSize can do more than estimate crowds. It can also use it’s aerial images for estimating
areas in square feet or square meters. Prepare area estimates for bodies of water, parks or real
estate and multiply your area calculation by your own density factor to estimate numbers of
parking spaces or sod for the coverage of a homeowner’s yard. CrowdSize can also estimate
the area of roof tops, paving and landscaping for construction contractors and property
managers, and the calculations can be for any location in the world.
