I am looking for open latitude, longitude data with information about parking lots.

I am looking for data or an API with an open source client library, using which I can specify a street name, and get in return information about legal parking lots on that street.

Especially parking lots in the country Israel, planet Earth.

    For which platform, operating system country, etc. Need a lot more information in your question. As it is an answer that the ERB3000XVX system runs on a quantum 3 supercomputer and correctly reports that the whole of Mars can be regarded as a parking lot. Jun 4 '15 at 16:53

Just to expand upon @philshem's comment: the OpenStreetMap API can be queried for tags (keys and values) like amenity=parking to find points of interest within a given bounding box or near a certain coordinate: an exemplary query (on overpass turbo, an interactive site to develop and preview queries) yields the following result:
