A parking spot is a point of connection between the persons inside a car and their desired activity. When people can not find parking spots, they perceive that there is a significant parking problem. This project considered parking issues facing downtown Roseville, California. To address this issue, this project provided two tools. First, the project provided a tool with a friendly interface for calculating parking demand for each parcel based on its land use, and for different time periods. Second, the project provided a tool for assigning each parking space to the parking demand within specific time period using ArcGIS Network Analyst extension. The tool used a location-allocation technique with random selection. These tools enable the user to model different scenarios for better decision making.
