Project Description


CarPark is an app developed using open data sets supplied by the City of Melbourne to solved the CBD congestion problem by navigating drivers to unoccupied parks to reduce the number of cars on the road while also reducing emissions.


Data Story


Files containing status and location of car parks was manipulated to filter for unoccupied parks and overlay onto a mapping interface. Using the number of occupied parks, peak traffic times were identified for the suggestion of alternative transport methods.
