Parking Garage Mapping

A Web-based application and a mobile application can be developed to map the availability or occupancy of parking spots in parking lots and parking garages. The parking map will be browser-based and updated instantly. The result of parking status in a garage or a parking lot can be obtained using mobile phones. Employees and contractors who are coming to work will use their mobile phones to navigate to open parking spots easily and quickly. Therefore, workers will not only save gas for looking for available parking spots but also get to their offices faster and start working efficiently. The mobile application will also allow an user to automatically mark the spot the user parks, which makes it easier to find his/her car in a huge parking garage or parking lot. The application will save commuting cost, make commuters work efficiently, and reduce pollutant releasing to the environment.
