Parking alliance launches new data standards

The Alliance for Parking Data Standards has released an updated version of the APDS Standards.

The updated APDS Standards 2.0 cover the Data Domains of Parking Place, Rate, Occupancy, Right, Session & Observation. Version 2.0 includes documents defining the various data elements related to parking, as well as mobility and transportation, including:

  • Data Dictionary: Terminology and definitions for the data elements
  • Use Cases: Example use cases for applying the data standard
  • Information Model: List of data elements, references, and relationship diagrams

Parking, transportation, and mobility professionals worldwide provided comments and suggestions to the development of Version 2.0.

The Alliance for Parking Data Standards (APDS) is a not-for-profit organisation formed by the International Parking & Mobility Institute (IPMI), the British Parking Association (BPA) and the European Parking Association (EPA). The organisation aims to develop, promote, manage, and maintain a uniform global standard that will allow organizations to share parking data across platforms worldwide.
