This category aims to describe the location of car-parks across France, and provide general traveller information (such as access information or an estimate of parking fees for each car-park).
Data for private car-parks in France are produced by different local authorities or parking operators.
These data, when published in a normalized format described here, are aggregated into a national dataset called Base Nationale des Lieux de Stationnement (BNLS).
This dataset only describes parking spaces accessible to the general public, with barrier entrance. Other datasets referenced here can have a broader definition and might include freely accessible car-parks, (ie. with no entrance barrier), in addition to the parking spaces with barrier entrance included in the “Base Nationale des Lieux de Stationnement” (BNLS).
