Valdese Lakeside Park Economic Impact Report Link

This is a 20+ page report I conducted on the visitation numbers of Valdese Lakeside Park and the economic impact they bring. Dozens of trails were studied using computer vision, and economic impact was looked at through spending on food, gas, and shopping, property tax and sales tax, transportation savings, and healthcare savings.

This is the live spreadsheet where you can see visitation numbers from all the trails at the park, dozens of sheets full of data, as well as Economic Impact being modeled for not just Valdese Lakeside Park, but also McGalliard Falls and Children's Park.

Below are videos of computer vision in use to analyze visitation numbers and verbal reports I have given of my research.
