City-Wide Parking Space & Parking Sign Inventory
City of Albany, New York
MJ was responsible for the collection and development of a GIS inventory and audit of the regulatory parking signs and on-street parking spaces within the City of Albany. This extensive effort included more than 50,000 signs and spaces along 230 street miles. To complete this project, MJ utilized our mobile LiDAR mapping system to collect 3D point cloud data and 360-degree panoramic photos along the City streets to capture the existing conditions. Using this data, our GIS team applied their database management and analysis expertise to develop the parking inventory.
The inventory included the City’s regulatory parking sign locations as exact point coordinates, and over twenty attributes for each sign such as the type of regulation and sign condition. Based on the parking signs, a block-by-block count of on-street parking spaces was performed using automated programming routines built by MJ. The inventory was prepared in Esri Geodatabase format that could be directly utilized by the City using their ArcGIS software, and was also published to an online webmap for interactive viewing right from a web browser.
