Technology used: Collaboration ADO.NET with Google Maps API
Our team of 2: Steve Pimen ( JS, G. Maps API, C#) and Microsoft C#, (ADO.NET, T-SQL) programmer from the campus.
Super smart and well-educated Indian coder. It was nice to work with her.
SF City Park Meters Database with limited temporary 48 hours access.
Visual Studio, Excel
Google Map API with clustering
The green pin is an unoccupied, definitely unpaid meter.
Refreshed G. map by timer every 2 minutes on our laptop.
Challenge was to add image processing footage from observed parking spot city video camera.
Processed footage would confirm the real Free Parking Meter.
The real-time image processing is heavy and not all meters are under surveillance. Those meters depend on their timer only. But if a car would leave earlier →
inadequate data is present in the system. Proposal on additional 3 sets of colors denied for the meters without cams.
Back-End or Server-side: ADO.NET to San Francisco City Park Meters Database.
City Representative observed/analyzed the Hackathon,

with JS Array or JSON (GeoJSON) file,
but not directly with large event-driven DB.
