Open Source Geospatial Software Provides Web Mapping Front End for Innovative Parking Project

New York, NY & San Francisco, CA - OpenGeo, the leader in open source geospatial technology, completed Phase II development for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agencys (SFMTA) SFpark project asset management system. SFpark uses geospatial and sensory technology to collect and distributes real-time parking availability information to drivers.
It also uses this data to regularly update meter and garage pricing to
ensure parking availability, providing for safer and clearer streets.

The OpenGeo Suite of open source technology supports SFpark by delivering assets to its robust web mapping application. The application integrates flexible asset management with business intelligence reports to deliver information-rich maps. These easy-to-use maps form the primary user interface, enabling the SFMTA to more easily select, group, and analyze parking management functions.

"OpenGeos geospatial and web mapping expertise was critical in helping SFMTA complete this project," said SFMTA Technology Innovations Lead Donovan Corliss. "We are very happy with the asset management tools ability to support our parking meter maintenance and pricing. OpenGeo has also created a new, more user-friendly map for SFpark.org, the public face of the project."

Ken Bossung, Senior Vice President of OpenGeo, added: "We are excited to be working with SFMTA on a nationally-recognized and innovative project. The success of SFpark is further proof of the strong feature functionality of open source software and the OpenGeo Suite. Were continually contributing back to the open source projects we support and clients like the SFMTA make that possible."
