Frequently Asked Questions
Where does ParkBot get its data?
ParkBot uses the same government-provided data feed as the parking signs which are dotted around Norwich city center. You can access the XML feed over here.
How accurate is ParkBot's data?
ParkBot's data is accurate to within five minutes: retrieving the latest batch of data seconds after the government feed updates. You can check the footer of the app to see when the last set of data was retrieved.
Is it free to use?
Yes. ParkBot is totally free for you to use, without any fees or charges. If you like using ParkBot and would like to help the creator out, consider buying me a coffee so I can continue to work on and improve the app!
Will ParkBot be available in other regions?
Yes - We are currently shipping ParkBot with just support for Norwich, but are aiming to expand to other cities which have live carpark data we can use.
Do you have an API I can use?
The government feed is a rather messy XML / SOAP endpoint, so we are currently working on opening up ParkBot's processed data into an easy-to-use API so everyone can create great applications using our live parking data!
Why is Riverside car park not listed?
Unfortunately the operators of Riverside switched to a closed, publically inaccessible method of reporting data which (for now) ParkBot cannot access. Hopefully that will change soon.
