Putting Wilderness Permit Information to Work
Abstract:Visitor use information from permits has important uses for both managers and the public. Basic summaries allow managers to (a) understand trends or changes in use, (b) determine where and when the regulation of visitors may or may not be needed, (c) select locations for public meetings and distribute news releases, and (d) plan work schedules. Summaries of use can help visitors better plan their visit by informing them about various temporal and spatial aspects of use. The advantages for managers to consider an online computerized system in their planning to analyze day-to-day use patterns also is discussed.
