Digital Parking Asset Mapping
Spot has developed a fast, accurate, scalable, and cost-efficient process by which to map parking assets.
This has proven to be a key foundational step for smart cities and private parking owners.
Geo-located parking signs and meters, interpreted into a powerful time-dynamic database is the first step towards smarter parking strategy, planning, regulation, and public communication.
Added to that the need to prepare for connected and autonomous vehicles; it is easy to see why accurate data of parking restrictions will only become more useful in the future.
If you want to know more about how Spot can map your parking assets - get in touch, we would love to chat!
Parking Asset Management Platform (PAM)
Spot collects data that fully encapsulates the restrictions along the entire side of each street, not just the parking areas. In this way, a holistic overview of parking restrictions can be created for asset owners to interrogate, report on, and strategize from.
Each asset is treated as a data point in PAM, with a category assigned, a geo-location, and a raw image showing the asset condition.
Spot works with cities to create powerful databases and key navigation for customers. We have found that whilst the core use cases are the same - 'Where can I park?' 'How long can I stay?' 'How much will it cost?' - different clients look for a focus on different features. Some clients have wanted to focus on School Safety, some on Disabled Spaces.
The parking finder is a versatile tool to visualise parking restrictions that can help people discover and plan their parking options. With the option to add sensors for real time availability and usage analytics, it becomes a powerful tool for the public and asset owners alike.
Case Study - School Parking Finder
Spot worked with the City of Parramatta to create an online, interactive resource to help improve pedestrian safety, ease congestion, and increase compliance to parking restrictions around school zones.
Take a look at the School Parking Finder here.
If you know of a school which could benefit from deploying the School Parking Finder - we would love to hear from you, please get in touch.
Case Study - Bendigo CBD Parking Finder
Spot worked with the City of Greater Bendigo to create an online, interactive resource to help people understand restrictions and find parking. The city wanted a particular focus on accessibility, so the Disability Inclusion Reference Committee of the city was consulted throughout the project. The tool was designed to give more information for disabled visitors to the city to find parking spots which suited their specific needs. In doing so, it is hoped that we can remove just one of the many difficulties faced by disabled people visiting new places.
