In this work, we describe the implementation of a smart parking and mapping system, named Smart Park, for searching and booking parking spaces in uncovered parking areas. This system comprises of a mobile application which allows users to view and select available parking slots on an interactive map based on aerial imagery. The system can suggest parking spaces based on criteria such as vehicle dimensions, distance to destination and user preferences. QR technology has been used to allow users to check-into and out of the parking lot. Moreover, the application integrates a map guidance system to guide users to their designated parking spaces. The application features an administrator interface, with parking data represented in visual format, for analysis and strategic decision making. The features implemented are aimed at alleviating the difficulties in parking identification and allocation, thereby minimising congestion in and around parking lots.
