The Economic Value of the US National Park
The scenery. The fresh air. The wildlife. The outdoor adventures. Anyone who’s been to one of our 59 beautiful national parks knows how fortunate we are to have them. National parks vary tremendously in their features––from mountains and waterfalls, to fields and canyons––but all are known for bringing priceless memories to those who visit.
While our national parkland is, by definition, federally protected and not for sale, it’s not exactly priceless. Make no mistake, there’s a dollar value associated with the land, and there’s an economic engine built into each state, based on the visitors who come to see that land. Now, thanks to an intriguing 2015 study by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (that establishes average values per acre in each of the 48 contiguous United States), and to data provided by the National Park Service about local economic impact, we can hone in on the real world value of these parks.

What is an Infographic?

Information graphics or infographics are graphic (realistic) visual representations of data, information or knowledge intended to present information clearly and quickly. They can enhance discernment by using illustrations to upgrade the human visual framework's capacity to see examples and patterns. Infographics have advanced as of late to be for mass correspondence, and in this manner are composed with less suppositions about the perusers information base than different sorts of perceptions.
