Isochrones indicate the total area that can be reached within a given time and by means of a given mode of transportation. They support accessibility analyses. Historically, isochrones have helped answer questions like:
- “What kind of foot traffic can we expect for a store, at this location?” or
- “If we put a bus stop there, how many riders will live within a 5-minute walk?” or
- “How many homes can a firehouse serve within a 10-minute drive?”
This plugin helps you to generate your own isochrones, right in your browser. With a starting location and Mapbox access token, the plugin will calculate isochrones up to 60 minutes via driving, cycling or walking.
