Velopark - all bicycle parkings in Belgium is a digital platform that makes all information about bicycle parking facilities in the whole of Belgium available to everyone. All useful user information is centrally located in one place:

The platform is built on the principle of Linked Open Data, and all data is publicly available, both the fixed data about bicycle parking and the dynamic data (the occupancy, where available). The data can be requested by consulting the linked open data catalog or via a user-friendly API.

The dataset mentioned is a link to the JSON-LD (Linked Data) catalog. However, if you are not familiar working with this format, a 'basic' API has been created: - for example, if you want data on all bicycle parkings in Belgium: A script was created to to fetch Velopark's parkings of a certain region (NIS code) into a CSV file:

The vocabulary can be found here: and on this Github repository:

Quality assessment

Velopark is structured in such a way that every municipality monitors the parking facilities on its territory and monitors the quality. Each municipality can add parking facilities itself, validate and publish parking facilities added by third parties, and modify or delete information. This means that the information depends on the municipality, but is generally of very high quality.
