General

What is the Parking alert?

The parking alert is a panel with a 3D icon which warns users when the amount of parking facilities in a given neighborhood is insufficient to comply with general demand or legislative requirements. This panel can be found on the Index. This alert is useful for:

  • Urban development projects
  • Different spatial plans are compared in the 3D world

The alert appears in the 3D world when the amount of parking facilities required exceed the amount of parking facilities provided in a given neighborhood. The resulting panel will display the availability, demand, compliance rate, and remaining demand. The color of the popup of the alert will change based on the compliance deficit.

Alert panel

The parking alert.

The alert panel shows the following information:

  • The amount of parking lots available.
  • The amount of parking lots demanded.
  • The current compliance rate.
  • The mandated compliance rate.
  • The amount of parking lots which need to be added to meet the mandated compliance rate.

Calculation

The panels appears when

where

  • is the current amount of parking lots
  • is the amount of parking lots demanded
  • is the current compliance rate
  • is the mandated compliance rate

The mandated compliance rate is set by the neighborhood's REQUIRED_PARKING_COMPLIANCE_RATE attribute. This is not a required attribute. If the neighborhood does not have that attribute, the mandated compliance rate is equal to the compliance target Global of the Parking Indicator on the Index. If there is no such Global in the project, the mandated compliance rate is 1.

The current amount of parking lots is requested from the Tygron Platform by using a TQL query.
The demanded amount of parking lots is determined with the Function values.
