The SQM has been used extensively for gathering data to help apply for
Dark-Sky Park Status with the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA).
Many people have applied to the IDA for a Dark-Sky park status including
Georgia MacMillan of the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology of Ireland.
Her extensive research and work on this topic can be found in these two
documents which may be helpful to others pursuing the same goal:
Dissertation PDF: Preserving our Night-time Skies, An exploratory
study on the impact of light pollution and the potential for a new
dark-sky site in County Mayo, Ireland. by Georgia MacMillan.
Application PDF: An Application to the International Dark-Sky
Association for Ballycroy National Park and Wild Nephin that are
included in the application for Mayo Dark Sky Park status.
