I am taking a data science class and we are supposed to develop our own final project idea.

The general context of the idea I am considering is that there is a group that meets once per week. Based on various features, I would like to see if it would be possible to predict the attendance. One factor, which may be difficult to obtain, that would affect attendance would be the road conditions. For example, several days after a big snow storm or during one, the attendance would be affected. I figure there is a chance such data would be available, as it would be for the Washington DC metro area, but I am not sure where I might find it.

This question came from our site for Data science professionals, Machine Learning specialists, and those interested in learning more about the field.

  • Have you searched for recent or historical weather data? – Spacedman Oct 26 at 7:43
  • Many states have a "road conditions" map (and Google has traffic maps). search.usa.gov/… may or may not be helpful (dc.gov is the main site for DC). You may also see if Maryland or Virginia road condition maps/data cover DC because of its unusual status. – Barry Carter Oct 27 at 15:32

http://biz.weather.com/WU-Data-API_Data-Package-Demo-Request.html looks like it may have all the data you need. Having said that, I'm viewing this on a small display so I can't tell if there is any free access to this.
