    Description

    Permits were first needed for visits to wilderness areas in California during summer 1971. A computerized system for analyzing these permits and summarizing information from them has been developed. It produces four types of summary tables: point-of-origin of visitors; daily variation in total number of persons present; variations in group size; and variations in length of stay. The Wilderness Information system was tested by analyzing 23,936 permits issued for six California wilderness areas in summer 1971.
