The Open Data BCN portal publishes the Off-street parking inventory of the B:SM (Barcelona de Serveis Municipals) network in the city of Barcelona. All the characteristics of the parking how are they, their localization, their timetables, their fee rates or the type of services available are detailed in this dataset. This data is added to the data already published about the surface parking spots of the same network in the city.
We are celebrating: the new Open Data BCN portal reaches its first year.
Open Data BCN is a key piece in the Barcelona Digital City strategy and it is integrated within the new Data Analytics Office, created recently, which has the goal to improve and coordinate the ethical and responsible management of the data inside the Barcelona City Hall starting from three lines of work: data gathering and storage, analytics, machine learning and predictions and finally, data sharing and communication. Barcelona wants to make data a common good, a city infrastructure controlled by citizens and open to local entrepreneurs.
