The service provides continuously updated information about locations and pricing of available parking in selected areas of San Francisco. DataSF, the city government's open data initiative, collects and distributes the information to help drivers choose when to drive and when to choose other transportation options. Data is provided by off-street parking providers and by sensors that report status of individual street parking spaces as occupied or vacant.
API methods support submission of search parameters, including location (latitude/longitude and preferred radius), type of parking desired (street or off-street), and whether or not to include rate information. Returned data include the locations of currently available parking, the type, and the applicable rate, if requested.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
