Appsterdam Message Board › Parking wish list

Parking wish list

jc (Jonathan C.
Amsterdam, NL
Can you let me know if you have anything to add, edit or remove from the wish list.
Here is the current version

  • The data should be available without a user account or complicated sign up

  • The data should be easily usable by developers i.e. in a json format, using standard longitude,latitude rather than a specialist grid reference systems, also it should be available in a lightweight format without too much overhead;

  • Include real time availability via a simple REST interface in ALL CASES unless is it completely impossible.

  • There should be a contact person for the data who can answer data related questions within a reasonable timeframe.

    To understand what unreasonable timeframe is read Erik Romijn's blog on “A dismal tale of gathering new open data” (http://blog.solidlink...­.

  • The data should be useable in any way we like and we should be able to collect it, store it, analyze it , combine it, and make our own predictive models.

  • We should also be able to use the data to criticize the parking authorities if we want to.

  • Parking tariff information must not be fixed data as we already know that variable rate parking is here very soon. (see : sf-park )

  • All necessary calculation formulas , for instance for day cards should be published.

  • All geo locations should be easily mappable to open street map.
