Transit Access Added to the Living Atlas and Urban Observatory

Blog Post created by SMatthews-esristaff Employee on Dec 12, 2014

The Urban Systems collection of the Living Atlas has recently expanded to include Transit Access. Defined as which areas in a city have easy access to public transportation? This access map reveals areas that are 1/4 mile, 1/2 mile, and 1 km away from the nearest bus, metro or train stop.  These distances equate to around a 5, 10, and 12 minute walk, typically.



This new map theme is also comparable to other select cities in the Urban Observatory.




Is there a transit map theme you would like to see become a reality? I am all ears. For example, how far are you from a ski resort? Personally, if I lived 15 minutes. from a ski resort, I would not be able to hold down a job.


Your input is welcome.
