Parking Lot Boundaries – Commercial, Industrial, Government (2014)

parking_lotsThis dataset contains the boundaries of parking lots in the County of Los Angeles 5,000 square feet and larger for commercial, industrial, and government properties.


The Los Angeles County Office of Sustainability funded the development of this dataset in order to support the identification of potential locations for the installation of solar photovoltaic canopy modules across the County on commerical, industrial, and government properties.

This dataset contains the boundaries of parking lots 5,000 square feet or greater.

Pictometry International Corp used the 2014 LARIAC orthogonal imagery to delineate the boundaries of these parking lots. A parking lot was defined as a paved area for parking, incluse of internal median areas. The data did NOT include:

  • rootop parking lots,
  • non-paved parking lots,
  • sidewalks and curbs,
  • school playgrounds,
  • structures that were within the parking lot, and
  • landscaping at the edges of parking lots.


LA County intersected the delivered parking lots with the December 2014 LA County Assessor Parcel file in order to add parcel ID and parcel use information. This will enable parking lot square footage to be reported for an individual parcel, as well as by the parcel type.


Available to only LA County Departments. If you wish to obtain this dataset, please contact Minh Le, General Manager of Energy and Environmental Services (EES) at MSLe@isd.lacounty.gov
