    Description

    The need for a committed system to monitor and track visitation over time is increasingly recognized by agencies and organizations that must be responsive to staffing, budgeting, and relations with external stakeholders. This paper highlights a process that one metropolitan park agency uses to monitor visitation, discusses the role of validity and reliability in the establishment of a sustained counting system, and highlights some of the challenges and limitations inherent in estimating visitation with inductive loop counters.
