Predictions with linear regression

In Statistics,

As I wrote on a previous post I recently made an webapp that displays the number of currently available parking spots on the FEUP campus parking lot.

Since it’s conception it has been gathering data and now that I have about a week of data is time to prepare for the next stage which is make predictions on the availability of the parking lot. For that I have chosen linear regression. It’s not very expensive (at least for now with just a few data points) and it seems to be enough for the task.

The functionality has been written but I still don’t have enough data to produce any trustable predictions so it’s deployment will not happen for at least one more week.
