I want to create an application that can take a certain data as input and hold it in the data base in a fashion that it is quick to search through it. Also, we want to be able to do 1000s of search simultaneously.
The data in question is parking regulation information which varies from block to block in any given city. One block could have 3 hour parking from 8:00am to 8:00pm while the other block could have 2 hour parking and the third can have rush hour no parking from 4:00pm to 6:00pm but back to regular parking after 6:00pm till 8:00pm.
The elements are:
• Regular Parking Hours
• Rush Hour Time
• Truck Loading Time
• Loading Zones
• Valet Parking
GPS_Location = A:
Reg_Parking = <8:00am to 4:00pm> & <6:01pm to 10:00pm>
Rush_hour = 4:01Pm to 6:00pm
No_of_Meters = 3
Loading_Zone = Yes
Truck_Loading = <7:00am to 7:59am>
We want to organize this data so that one can use their mobile phone to send back a GPS location and receive information if they can park at that location.
I am not a programmer and so looking for some expert advice on how to go about thinking about this application such that we can input a CSV file with all the regulations information into the application and the application can organize the data.
