VisitorCounts: Modeling and Forecasting Visitor Counts Using Social Media

Performs modeling and forecasting of park visitor counts using social media data and (partial) on-site visitor counts. Specifically, the model is built based on an automatic decomposition of the trend and seasonal components of the social media-based park visitor counts, from which short-term forecasts of the visitor counts and percent changes in the visitor counts can be made. A reference for generating social media-based visitor counts can be found at Wood, Guerry, Silver, and Lacayo (2013) <doi:10.1038/srep02976>.
