The overall objective of this research project is to develop operationally feasible and statistically efficient visitor use estimation procedures for Grand Teton National Park (GTNP). More specific objectives are: 1. Identify problems with the current estimation procedures; 2. Design procedures for generating improved visitor use estimates that satisfy the reporting needs of GTNP; 3. Develop an automatic data processing system that will produce the visitor use summaries required by GTNP; and 4. Implement the procedures on a test scale during the summer of 1982 and estimate parameters for the test period.
