SFMTA upgrades the SFpark.org online parking map using OpenGeo technology
Today, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) launched a new interactive parking map for SFpark.org. The SFMTA developed the new map in collaboration with OpenGeo, a division of the non-profit OpenPlans and a leader in open source geospatial technology. The new map both improves usability and creates a platform by which SFpark can add additional layers of parking information to the map, making it a richer resource for SFMTA customers. The map currently features parking pricing and availability information for metered blocks and garages in SFpark pilot areas. This map helps SFpark reduce circling and double-parking, leading to safer, clearer streets.
