ABSTRACT:Since the early twentieth century, thematic mapping techniques such as isochrones have been used for visualizing the accessibility and mobility provided by urban transportation networks. These maps typically depict the area accessible from a point within a certain time or distance threshold. This article details a design alternative to conventional isochrones, which links travel times to network edges. Benefits of this technique include highlighting the network structure of transport…

Consideration of Uncertainty Information in Accessibility Analyses for an Effective Use of Urban Infrastructures
TLDR
A structured framework is set up that describes the integration of uncertainty information for accessibility analyses and pays particular attention to the impact of the uncertainties in the target values, as these are key factors for reasoning and decision making.
Towards Dynamic Isochrone Mapping Accounting for Uncertainty
TLDR
An overview of work on dynamic factors that contribute to uncertainty in isochrone calculation and mapping is given and preliminary results from a practical approach to quantifying uncertainties in ischrone calculation for motorized individual transport based on Monte Carlo simulations and data from open routing APIs are presented.
Indirect flood impacts and cascade risk across interdependent linear infrastructures
Abstract. Floods are one of the most frequent and damaging natural threats worldwide. Whereas the assessment of direct impacts is well advanced, the evaluation of indirect impacts is less frequently
Zones of Influence of the Cities of the Far East: Current State and Development Prospects
Abstract —The spatial development of Russia’s Far East is a priority state task. Therefore, identification of the zones of influence of cities has become important for elaborating effective
Indirect flood impacts and cascade risk across interdependent linear infrastructures
Abstract. Floods are the most frequent and damaging natural threat worldwide. Whereas the assessment of direct impacts is well advanced, the evaluation of indirect impacts is less frequently
Flood Management in Aqala through an Agent-Based Solution and Crowdsourcing Services in an Enterprise Geospatial Information System
TLDR
The present study aimed to deploy crowdsourcing services properly to spatial urgent requests and found that crowdsourcing service was positioned well in the solution and provided good performance among the elements of the Geospatial Information System.
Seismic Vulnerability Assessment Methodologies for Roadway Assets and Networks: A State-of-the-Art Review
TLDR
This paper focuses on available assessment methods, which were proposed to quantify the vulnerability of road networks and its assets, and points out their advantages and disadvantages.

Using desktop GIS for the investigation of accessibility by public transport: an isochrone approach
TLDR
It is suggested that isochrones (lines of equal travel time) are a natural way to combine two approaches to the measurement of accessibility aggregate accessibility measures and the space-time geography framework in a GIS setting.
Determining Objects within Isochrones in Spatial Network Databases
TLDR
This paper presents two algorithms for determining all objects that are within an isochrone, and in an empirical evaluation using real-world data they are compared with a precise yet expensive baseline algorithm.
Towards a Dynamic Isochrone Map: Adding Spatiotemporal Traffic and Population Data
TLDR
This research combines spatiotemporal traffic and population distribution data in a dynamic isochrone map and can dynamically analyze the areas and people who can reach various home interior stores in the Netherlands within a given time, taking into account traffic conditions and the location of people throughout the day.
Mapping transit‐based access: integrating GIS, routes and schedules
TLDR
It is seen that current methods fall short in measuring transit service access in several meaningful aspects, and new refinements that can be used to help overcome some of these shortcomings are proposed.
Public transport versus private car GIS-based estimation of accessibility applied to the Tel Aviv metropolitan area
The increasing interest in sustainable development has underlined the importance of accessibility as a key indicator to assess transport investments, urban policy, and urban form. From both the
Fast Computation of Continental-Sized Isochrones
TLDR
An approach to speed up the computation of isochrones, which are maps showing the reachability of locations given a starting point and a time constraint, by developing a data structure that precomputes and materializes a large part of an isochrone map.
