This paper provides an overview and a qualitative evaluation of the available technologies and techniques that can be applied to data collection on crowds. The issue is not trivial, as it doesn't exist an established method or a standard technique or technology to collect information on crowds, neither are established the dimensions of crowds that have to be considered relevant to gain knowledge about crowd dynamics. Data collection constitute a critical issue for pedestrian simulation, especially for the validation phase of simulation cycle. Introduction briefly resumes the main theories on crowds and introduces the kinds of quantities that can be measured in a crowd. In the work are then exposed the kinds of data that can be acquired, and a qualitative evaluation of these is proposed.
