In just a few short months (~24 months if you factor in Lauren’s first published parking dataset to github), Parkadelphia has evolved into a very useful application. Check it out!
Parkadelphia (Street Parking in Philadelphia)
Street Parking Philadelphia
Note: Project in discovery phase.
Street parking dataset for kiosk-metered zones has been requested from Streets department, likely ETA is 2015. Intended scope will cover creating a method to parse/manipulate dataset into usable format for API development, then UI development including a map visualization, searchable zone information such as allowed time period, cost per hour, kiosk locations and residential permit areas. Updates will follow when data is available.
Preliminary Data Points
- Residential Parking Permit Districts No set exists for this; so geoJSON version built from city ordinance Â§12-2703 6.19.14 (LSA)
Drivers and data-heads alike, rejoice: One designer has created a helpful map for Philadelphia motorists, making it easier to see the borders of the Parking Authority’s residential permit parking districts.
