Smart City API - Franklin County, Ohio Data

This project provides methods for viewing and accessing parking data. Currently, there are APIs for parking meters and parking tickets across the Columbus metropolitan area. There is also parcel data from the Franklin County Auditor's website.

The data used was provided by the city of Columbus, OH for 2016 (parking tickets and meters) and 2017 (parcels).
