For any Air Quality analysts, familiar with Mobile6.2 by EPA is a must. EPA publishes the user manual in PDF format, while it is easier to print a hard copy use PDF files, it is not that easy to search and navigate quickly to the point of interests. Thus I take some time to recompile it into HTML format. Send me an email to email@example.com to request this file.

I don’t know about you, but paying one grand for a board counter and another one grand for data transfer software seems nuts to me, so I wrote this free counter program to save you some money.
Oh, that is just my joke:), the idea actually came from work. The company I am working for does not have any electronic counter but old mechanical counter, you know what a pain and mess is to use four mechanic counter to collect a four-approach intersection turning movements. What, you were never sent to do a 13 hour counting, alone when you were junior, Wow, then congratulations, you can skip this page and save your time for more meaningful things in your life.
The latest version of JLCounter is 1.0, it has two version and can run on Microsoft Windows Platform and Palm. It can be used to do Intersection Turning Movement , Manual Classification Study and Intersection Delay Studies. I am attaching some screen shots to give you a feeling of it.
The best part of JLCounter is not it is free, but it records the exact time when user press the button. It not only records the volume, but also records the time of vehicle passing by. These time-stamped raw data can be further used to analyze gap, saturation flow rate and other useful traffic data. JLCounter has built-in capability to convert these time-stamped raw data into counts summary grouped by 15 minutes or any time selected by user.
So in a nutshell, JLCounter
All right, enough of self pumping. If interested, write me an email to request the setup file at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course it is free, but if you like it and are in a good mood, donate me a beer.
