ParkJam: Crowdsourcing Parking Availability Information with Linked Data (Demo)

Presented at: 9th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2012)

by Jacek Kopecky, John Domingue

This demo shows a mobile Android app that uses openly available geographic data and crowdsources parking availability information, in order to let its users conveniently find parking when coming to work or driving into town. The application builds on Linked Data, and publishes the crowdsourced parking availability data openly as well. Further, it integrates additional related data sources, such as events and services, to provide rich value-adding features that will act as an incentive for users to adopt the app.

Keywords: car parking, crowdsourcing, linked geographic data, mobile semantic application
