CampusBird's live parking feed will improve visitor experience by saving the time, cost and headache of driving around trying to find a parking spot and subsequently reduce campus traffic
Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) May 09, 2016
CampusBird, developer of a powerful interactive campus map and media platform, announced today the integration of a data feed providing campus visitors with real-time information about parking lot occupancy. CampusBird is the first interactive campus map software to offer live parking display.
The integration provides CampusBird clients with another tool to improve their overall campus experience for visitors, and gives admissions, marketing and facilities officials the ability to redirect visitors on the fly and to indicate when a particular lot is closed for a special event or construction, among other uses. CampusBird’s live parking feed integration is already in use at one of the largest public universities in the United States.
“We know parking is a major pain-point for campus visitors and schools, and this new integration will ease some of that pain for our clients,” said Oliver Davis, CEO of concept3D, the developer of CampusBird. “Now, anyone with a mobile device can pull up CampusBird and immediately see available parking. The live parking feed will improve visitor experience by saving the time, cost and headache of driving around trying to find a parking spot and subsequently reduce campus traffic.”
Live parking data is displayed on the CampusBird interactive map with color-coded polygons: red lots are full; yellow lots are almost full; green lots have plenty of capacity. CampusBird map visitors can select a specific lot to see the exact number of spaces available.

“The live parking feed further demonstrates the utility of the CampusBird platform,” added Davis. “Beyond displaying your campus online with an elegant, 3D map, the CampusBird platform is specifically designed for multiple administrators and departments to create, manage and promote location-based information, all in one hub. CampusBird provides a huge advantage for schools looking to transform their online campus experience.”
CampusBird is built to accommodate any third-party data feeds and currently integrates live event, real-time bus route, and ESRI feeds in addition to the live parking data feed.
