Abstract

The goal of this project was to demonstrate the feasibility of using a mobile application to collect data about vehicle position and movement in Acadia National Park. This was done to show a proof of concept for a more effective way to collect data on vehicular traffic throughout the park. The data that was collected and stored by our application contained GPS location, time, and a user ID. Our project also determined the willingness of volunteers to download a mobile application for park research. The feasibility of the application was determined and suggestions were made regarding its future implementation. The application was distributed to visitors in the park in order to demonstrate the efficacy of the data collected. ArcGIS and Google Maps were used to display and analyze data.
