R Dataset / Package mosaicData / RailTrail
Volume of Users of a Rail Trail
The Pioneer Valley Planning Commission (PVPC) collected data north of Chestnut Street in Florence, MA for ninety days from April 5, 2005 to November 15, 2005. Data collectors set up a laser sensor, with breaks in the laser beam recording when a rail-trail user passed the data collection station.
A data frame with 90 observations on the following variables.
hightempdaily high temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit)
lowtempdaily low temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit)
avgtempaverage of daily low and daily high temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit)
springindicator of whether the season was Spring
summerindicator of whether the season was Summer
fallindicator of whether the season was Fall
cloudcovermeasure of cloud cover (in oktas)
precipmeasure of precipitation (in inches)
volumeestimated number of trail users that day (number of breaks recorded)
weekdayindicator of whether the day was a non-holiday weekday
There is a potential for error when two users trigger the infrared beam at exactly the same time since the counter would only logs one of the crossings. The collectors left the motion detector out during the winter, but because the counter drops data when the temperature falls below 14 degrees Fahrenheit, there is no data for the cold winter months.
