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 information by the bay_id attribute. The on-street parking bays and the on-street car park bay information don’t currently join.
This dataset is updated through network relays and can be disrupted causing delays in data updates. Users of this data are encouraged to monitor the dataset's last updated timestamp (last_updated column) to check for delays in the data being updated.
