Park View

I’ve decided to take a fresh approach to visualizing the demand for parking and a business node.  I’ve put together a purely client-side javascript application that does a discrete event simulation of people arriving, looking for a parking space and leaving.  Here is the latest version http://michaelaltmann.github.io/parkview/public/index.html

I’ve also found that Itzhak Benenson and his collaborations have created a couple of ArcGIS -based tools called PARKAGENT and PARKFIT that set out to solve the same problem and are quite detailed.  See http://tau.ac.il/~bennya/1parking.html  and http://www.slideshare.net/swenney/parking-benenson-olomouc
