Thanks John. All great stuff and others have suggested similar. Some of it is already there. Level of charging, type of connector are already there. I know, some sites are lacking it. Also trying to weed out the old "bad" sites. Check out this example at the L.A convention center for a connector and level example, plus some nice pics.johnr wrote:The route mapping tools found on the DoE and Chargepoint sites are really nice. Maybe you'd want to look into a similar feature. If your site proves to be easy to use, up-to-date, and has some useful features I think it really has potential. Of course all that means nothing without a comprehensive list of stations, so I'm glad to hear you're still finding data sources to pull from. Being able to search by and differentiate the different parameters such as: types of charging connectors, speed (level 1, level 2, level 3), cost, private vs public location, whether special arrangement/subscription is required, would be useful.
Private vs public or special arrangement is going to be the next level of field work as it's hard to get that exact info. This is where the crowd sourcing from folks driving daily is going to really come into play. We can get all the data we want here, but reality at the station is going to different and important to comment on.
Side note: I am going to post fun new station sites from time to time as I come across them If I think there is an interesting story behind them.
Now, I just have to find some more time in those 24 hours
