Accessibility Travel Time to Major Cities

Primary tabs

Accessibility is defined as the travel time to a location of interest using land (road/off road) or water (navigable river, lake and ocean) based travel. This accessibility is computed using a cost-distance algorithm which computes the cost of traveling between two locations on a regular raster grid. Generally this cost is measured in units of time. The input GIS data and a description of the underlying model that were developed by Andrew Nelson in the GEM (Global Environment Monitoring) unit in collaboration with the World Bank's Development Research Group between October 2007 and May 2008. The pixel values representing minutes of travel time. Available dataset: Joint Research Centre - Land Resource Management Unit
