ESPON: Update of Selected Potential Accessibility Maps (2006-2007)

In ESPON 1.2.1, S&W had developed potential accessibility indicators for road, rail and air for NUTS-3 regions for the year 2001. These accessibility indicators were used in several ESPON projects and EU documents, among them the Third Cohesion Report of the European Commission. In 2006 ESPON commissioned a study to update the potential accessibility indicators for road and rail with 2006 network data. The work was carried out in in co-operation with RRG Spatial Planning and Geoinformation, Oldenburg i. H., Germany. The Final Report of the study can be downloaded from the ESPON website.
