    In all seriousness, do you have a link for this? That would be interesting.

    There's no magic to USA Today's methodology; they took the actual area and estimated at a person per 2.5 square feet. That's simple math.

    The north glen alone is about half the size of the area estimated to hold 946,000. So, be conservative, round it down, say 400,000.

    In the pic, it's filled, but not very densely, so say 1/4 of the density contemplated. That's 100,000 people right there.

    The mall area, too, is almost that size; also being conservative, if it were all solid ground, it too would hold about 400,000. The reflecting pool takes up about 75% of the space, but of the people there, it IS densely packed, so it's a pretty fair estimation that it, too, is about 100,000.

    That doesn't include the people around the memorial, around the middle pool, in the pathways, and obscured by the trees.

    So, looks like at least 200,000 to me, through simple, conservative calculations.

    And I really don't even care how many are actually there; I'm just fascinated with the need of some people to diminish it as much as possible and not admit it could possibly have been more than the lowest estimate one could find.
    Beck is going to use an event of Obama's that was 100,000 and lay it over the 8.28 rally and see how many he can fit on it. He's suppose to show us tomorrow. What do ya' all think of that idea?

    Barb, did you hear about Beck's new project? Man, that guy must work non-stop. Go check out his homepage.

    from one of the analysts:



    Is their estimate correct? probably not, it is an estimate as I stated, but also as I stated it appears to be the most methodologically sound estimate out there.

    The correct answer to how many people were there: quite a few.. and we have no way of knowing so we just have to go with the most reasonable guesstimate. I choose to put more stock in the methodology of a guesstimate that employs integrating the density and not treating it as a constant, and then uses a statistical comparison of independent findings to gauge the accuracy, over "X sq ft * 2.5 = estimate."

    I did not do this out of a need to promote the low ball number, I jut saw the bickering, became curious, looked into it, and came to the conclusion that their methods were fairly sound, although the entire art of crowd estimates is basically guesswork, the arialphotos estimate at least seems to attempt to make the most accurate guess they could, and to try to make it as sound as they could.
    I simplified it to average density in order to be as conservative and transparent as possible.

    One person per 2.5 square feet is a bit tight, considering the green; I would say about one person per 10 square feet.

    10.00 square feet = A square ~ 3.16 x 3.16 feet, plenty of space for a person (unless REALLY large).
    RightinNYC is correct; this is why I said it was about 1/4 the density comtemplated by USA Today.

    I don't think he's talked about it yet. He just put it up on his site tonight. Blogs are already commenting on it.

    Excellent, I wondered if that were the case.
