Philadelphia's data scientist Lauren Ancona has created this wonderfully practical guide to parking in the city. Parkadelphia shows streets colored by regulation - metered streets are red while residential permits are blue.
Zoom in enough and you can see the actual meters. Click on one for more specific regulations, including how many quarters you will need-for those of us who still use cash.
The site uses Mapbox, so it looks great on mobile devices, where you might need it the most.

The site is in beta so some of the regulations are under review. She is taking feedback from residents and has a nice little warning note in Philly-ese explaining the beta situation.
You can submit feedback from the white word-bubble icon in the top right,

as many have done.
