Dataset of parking records from 8 car parks located in Bath, United Kingdom; datasets of potentially relevant information for predicting car park occupancy; and functions for obtaining and working with these datasets.

Parking data is open-source and is provided by Bath and North East Somerset Council in collaboration with Bath: Hacked.

If you just want the functions without the datasets, you can find a stripped-down version of the package at BANEScarparkinglite.

What's new in v0.2.0:


  • All available car parking records up to end of 2017 added to full_dataset (the sensors on both SouthGate car parks have been out of action since November 2016 so there's no new data for either of those)
  • rugby dataset updated: now contains dates/results of all Bath Rugby home games from September 2014 to end of 2017
  • events dataset updated: now contains event counts for each day from 2014-10-17 to 2017-12-31
  • weather dataset updated: now contains daily weather report for each day from 2014-10-17 to 2017-12-31, and the format is a bit nicer
  • get_daily_weather produces the nicer-format weather table for any given date range (no longer limited to retrieving 398 records in one go...)
