This paper will be published in Proceedings of the 9th Extended Semantic Web Conference 2012 (ESWC 2012) took place from May 27, 2012 to May 31, 2012 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.


This demo shows a mobile Android app that uses openly available geographic data and crowdsources parking availability information, in order to let its users conveniently nd parking when coming to work or driving into town. The application builds on Linked Data, and publishes the crowdsourced parking availability data openly as well. Further, it integrates additional related data sources, such as events and services, to provide rich value-adding features that will act as an incentive for users to adopt the app.
