Eco Counter connector

The Eco Counter connector retrieves count data from Eco Counter's Eco-Visio platform. It creates a dataset with records about counting sites and counters.

Using the Eco Counter connector, you can retrieve two types of data:

  • Eco Counter Data provides data about a counter, including the counting Site ID where the counter is installed, etc.

  • Eco Counter Sites provides data about counting sites, including site position, installation date, etc.
