We traditionally tag our site plans in CAD with the parking lot # and total # of parking spaces within that lot. I'm looking for a way to mimic this in Revit. Is there a way to create a room or space for the lot and tag this?

Our other option is to have our parking schedule on our site plans, which requires some slight retraining throughout the organization to see the information in a different way.

Thanks for any help!

I don't see a way to do this automatically... that is to actually count.... but you can assign shared parameters to any model element and create a tag to read that parameter.   So, say the parking lot is a  floor slab (I doubt this), you could assign 2 shared parameters to floor slabs that are lot number and number of cars and create a floor tag to read these.  <<< This sounds kind of dumb to me.  In CAD this is just a dumb tag but in Revit you have some more power. 

 

So maybe instead of tagging a slab, you create an invisible site hosted family called parking lot and it has the two shared parameters assigned to it.   Now you can create a tag for this AND these lots can be scheduled!

I was worried the only way to do this would be the 'dumb' way. It really wouldn't be too many steps to do this- we could pull the information right from the schedule we currently have but it leaves room for human error.

Your suggestion of a site hosted family- would there be a way for it to recognize hosted parking spaces? I'd rather not have to manually enter any information into the tag.

Did you use the parking family?  If so, then you can add a lot number to this family.  Then you can schedule the parking and sort/total by lot number.  BUT this number would still have to be manually added to your tag.
