The Car Park data feed provides details on Car Parks, such as location, configuration and dynamic occupancy updates. Car Park data is split across 2 feeds.
Car Park Static
The static car park data provides information on all public car parks (that we are aware of) regardless of whether or not real time occupancy data is available. The data for static feed includes:
- The System Code Number or unique ID
- A Short Description – Full car park name
- A Long Description – Full postal address
- Geo-reference of the Location, in Easting/Northing & Latitude/Longitude
- Last Updated information of the car park asset on the UTMC system
- Capacity of the car park
- Configuration Date of the car park asset on the UTMC system
Car Park Dynamic
The Car Park Dynamic Data contains occupancy (where known) and the state of the car park.
- The System Code Number or unique ID.
- Latest recorded Occupancy figure of car park.
- Current car park State Description. For car parks that do not have occupancy data, this will either be OPEN or CLOSED.
- Last Updated information of car park asset on the UTMC system. Normally every 60 seconds.
Currently we are only able to provide reliable occupancy information for major car parks in Newcastle along with Park & Ride sites across Tyne & Wear. It is hoped that a new system will shortly be deployed in Gateshead. List of assets with live data are below:
