OpenGeo Suite Supports SFPark and Cleaner, Safer Streets in San Francisco

Today OpenGeo, the leader in open source geospatial technology, completed Phase II development for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (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.

“OpenGeo’s 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 tool’s 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.”
