March 20 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Virtual Event Virtual Event

The New York City (NYC) Department of Transportation (DOT) is responsible for installing all parking and traffic signage in the five boroughs of NYC. DOT recently created a dataset of all parking regulation signs and released it on NYC Open Data. For public consumption, they also created a public facing map of all the parking regulation signage. However, recently the Parking team at NYC DOT endeavored to map these regulations to the sidewalk curbs, like the maps for San Francisco and Philadelphia, which would allow them to see the specific regulations for section of curb.

Join this session to learn about DOT’s work to build an application that would be updated in near-real time using the information NYC DOT releases to Open Data. The goal of this project is to create a python script that uses the parking regulations point data feed and maps it to the NYC curb line. This data will be highlighted as a custom web map application of all parking regulations along NYC curbs.
