Ann Arbor DDA has a new web site, and real time parking information is available again

The Ann Arbor DDA has launched a new web site, and one of the features of it is a map with information available in real time about parking availability at various structures.

The structures are in a shade of pale blue, and the lots are in pale green; my current location is marked with a bubble.

If you're looking for just space available information, there's a JSON file with that data; you'll have to unpack it to map structures to their ID numbers. I don't know how stable the URL for that data will be (http://www.a2dda.org/map/AADDACount.json) over time.

As always, if you're going to be fetching a file as part of an application you are building, and you fetch it repeatedly, please cache the data for a reasonable time and use common sense not to surprise anyone with what you are doing.
