Each row contains information about the restrictions that apply to one parking bay. Each restriction consists of a set of columns:
How the data joins:
There are three datasets that make up the live parking sensor release. They are the on-street parking bay sensors, on-street parking bays and the on-street car park bay restrictions.
The way the datasets join is as follows. The on-street parking bay sensors join to the on-street parking bays by the marker_id attribute. The on-street parking bay sensors join to the on-street car park bay restrictions by the bay_id attribute. The on-street parking bays and the on-street car park bay restrictions don’t currently join.
Field information:
- FromDay: The first day in the range on which this restriction applies (0=Sunday, 6=Saturday)
- ToDay: The final day in the range, inclusive. (1-5=Monday to Friday)
- StartTime: The time each day when the restriction applies.
- EndTime: The time each day when the restriction ends.
- TypeDesc: The type of restriction. Eg: "2P Meter" (two hour parking, paid for using a meter), "Disabled Only" (only vehicles with disabiled permits can park).
- Description: A compact, human-readable description of the overall restrictions. TKT A stands for Ticket Area covers multiple bays within that area. DIS ONLY and DIS are both disabled parking spaces
- Duration: The time that a vehicle can park in the spot (assuming they can legally park there).
- DisabilityExt: For bays that aren't limited to disabled permits, how much time a vehicle with disabled permit can spend in the spot. Usually twice the regular amount of time.
- EffectiveOnPH: Does this restriction apply on public holidays.
- Exemption: Which vehicles are exempt.
There can be multiple restrictions, occurring at non-overlapping times. Each restriction is a set of columns with a number: FromDay1, ToDay1, StartTime1, EndTime1, etc.
