Scratching my Green P Parking Itch

I love using Green P Parking when I’m in Toronto. The pricing is reasonable compared to some other private lots, and I always know what to expect.

What I don’t love, is having to go to the Green P site after I’ve already found directions to my destination on Google Maps.

So, I’ve crated a scraper at http://scraperwiki.com/scrapers/greenp_carparks/ and a site on Google App Engine to serve up properly Content-Type’d KML to easily paste into Google Maps right over the directions that I’ve already searched for. The KML source is even usable in Bing maps :).
