ArcGIS Lab

Modified on Fri, 23 Feb at 3:48 PM




The ArcGIS Data Layers lab displays Passport, municipality, and other third-party data sets over an interactive map. You can manipulate these data points (including Passport data, your data, and public third-party data) to see the effects on the underlying map.

Initially, the data layers include Passport parking and enforcement data.

  • Note: All data updates daily (which means you will be viewing data that is current as of yesterday).


When you enter this lab, an empty map of the United States will display.

Note: You will be able to display one or more data layers at time, including parking revenue, Passport’s citation data, and parking session data.


  • You can apply multiple layers simultaneously.

  • You can apply multiple filters to a layer simultaneously.

  • You can only apply one widget at a time to a layer.


  1. Select Manage Layers

  2. On the Passport Layers tab, select your Date Range

    • Note: The map will zoom in to a level where all your data can be displayed.

    • Note: When you zoom out, your data points will cluster and summary data will be displayed.

    • When you zoom in to a particular data item, you can select that data point to view its detailed information.

      • Note: These details enable you to quickly connect the dots between different data sets.

  3. Select your Data Layers

    1. Select Add Layer for the Citations layer and/or the Parking layer

    2. Note: Toggle data layers on/off by using the Show/Hide Layer (eyeball) icon.

Ways You Can Experiment

  • Use the Date Playback option at the top of the page to view your data during a specific timeframe.

  • Select the Public Layers tab, then toggle data layers on/off by using the Show/Hide Layer (eyeball) icon.

    • Note: If your selected data does not display, Zoom In.

  • Adjust the Base Map Layer Services icon to view the underlying map display. Options include: Imagery, Imagery Hybrid, Topographic, Streets, etc.


As you experience this lab, please consider additional data layers that could help answer questions you might have. For example:

  • What attractions surround areas that are generating the most revenue? Should we update policies in these areas to increase zone/space turnover?

  • Where are citations most frequently being issued? Is the price of those citations on par with the demographic make-up of those areas? 

  • What areas have the highest volume of issued citations? Should we update the policies or otherwise change how we are operating in these areas to better promote compliance? 

  • How does compliance activity compare across meter vs. non-metered areas? Are there historical factors that have promoted better compliance that we should leverage?

  • Other?


After you spend some time exploring this lab, make sure to complete the exit survey.
