Parking Tool

Define parking spaces and other parking-related markings

Description

The Parking Tool can be used to define parking spaces or other parking-related markings. You can assign marking styles to the boundaries of spaces and parking nodes of parking spaces.

Parking spaces are created as a curve, where spaces are automatically created along the curve. Parking curves are automatically created for lanes of type parking.

Parking spaces are modeled as a region graph, where each closed region represents a parking space.

Markings can be placed on the graph edge curves to represent painted boundaries.

A graph edge curve can be optionally marked as an Entry Edge. This indicates that a vehicle can enter the parking space from that edge.
