Good time of day! 

What are the general guidelines for selecting your parking spot/gate at the arrival airport and is there a way to monitor whether another aircraft is currently occupying or planning to park at a certain stand so you don't contact ground with a request to park on top of another plane?

Hi Ilya,

for this purpose you can use additional programs, for example "LittleNavMap" (great freeware!). Just enter the airport code that you want to check and it will automatically go there and zoom to apron level so you can see what stands are available. What it cannot do is, however, show planning data. Only ATC will know if a stand has been assigned. In many places of the world it is ATC who assign parking stands to pilots. You can, of course, make a request for a specific stand.

IIUC, this is because it uses a lot of specific information about EHAM to make it work. They do things like scrape real-world schedules and such to figure out where an aircraft would go IRL, and the rules for that are different for each airport. It could be done for other airports as well, but you'd have to redo most of the work from scratch for each one.
