European Accessibility and Peripherality: Concepts, Models and Indicators (2002-2004)

In the project for the Nordic Centre for Spatial Development (Nordregio) a review of accessibility concepts, models and indicators was undertaken. The project concluded the work done in a number of studies applying a European perspective to accessibility and peripherality of the Nordic countries. By using new travel cost data and relating accessibility to population development, drawbacks of the peripheral location of the Nordic regions were pointed out. The Final Report of the study can be downloaded from the Nordregio website.
