Traffic congestion in National Parks has been an issue the National Park System has been trying to solve for a long time. The goal of this project was to discover how big data can be used to help inform Acadia National Park’s future actions. To do this, we used StreetLight, a traffic data aggregation and processing service. We analyzed its effectiveness at finding the travel patterns, parking durations, and demographics of park visitors. These results are then compared to other data collection methods. Additionally, we provided recommendations on how Acadia National Park could utilize big data to improve their current services and inform their future actions.
