I encourage you to poke around the map to see if you can find any interesting patterns on how the Toronto City Parking authority is issuing parking tickets. There does seem to be a clear pattern of higher parking related revenue being generated close to hospitals, malls and schools. Perhaps there is a lack of parking facilities in this area? Or is this location highly targeted by parking enforcement officers for one reason or another?
In the future, I plan to drill down deeper into the available data to come up with conclusions about what the map visualizations tell us. Learn how I created this map here. Please share your feedback and comments below!
