Product Update - Curb Editing and GeoJSON uploads

Curb editing

We’re excited to announce a new feature designed specifically for those customers collecting curb data with Coord: curb editing.

While we have integrated a wide-range of data sources into Coord for our customers (paid parking data, residential permit zones, constructions permits… the list goes on), up until now, the only way to add and edit new assets for a curb within the Coord platform was by using the Coord Collector app.

Although every curb still needs to start from the Coord Collector app, Coord now supports curb editing directly in the Collection Management platform!

Based on feedback from our city customers, we’ve realized there are certain situations where being able to make quick edits post-collection, like extending a curb cut, or adding in a missed bus stop sign, might streamline collection operations and lead to more accurate curb data, faster.

If you’re interested in learning more about how to edit your collected curb data, as always, reach out to your account manager or at support@coord.com.


Uploading boundaries of parking districts and neighborhoods

Our goal at Coord is always to make it as easy as possible to work with your existing data. Until now, the only way to add an area for analysis in Coord was to draw it using the polygon tool or send Coord a GeoJSON or Shapefile outlining the area, which our team would then upload to the platform for you.

While the ability to draw a custom area for an analysis is valuable, we understand that cities often have existing areas that are well-defined geospatially - parking districts, neighborhoods, residential parking permit zones, city council districts etc. Knowing this, we decided to add a self-serve GeoJSON upload feature to the Coord platform.

To use it, simply create a new project and click the “Upload GeoJSON” button. Add your file, name it, and jump right into analysis!

If you have more questions about the feature, check out our video walk-through!
