Main Title: High resolution accessibility computations
Author(s): Nicolai, Thomas W.
Nagel, Kai
Type: Book Part
Language Code: en
Abstract: The goals of this chapter are accordingly: to define an accessibility measure for each point of the region; to clarify how access to and egress from the transport network are handled; for grid-based computations, to clarify the effect of different spatial resolutions; to consider computational performance issues; to perform illustrative sensitivity studies in a real-world setting including the effect of traffic congestion. Section 4.2 describes in detail how this accessibility measurement is implemented. Section 4.3 describes a real-world scenario to which the approach was applied. Section 4.4 presents results of this application, in particular with respect to spatial resolution and computing times. The chapter ends with a discussion and conclusions in sections 4.5 and 4.6.
