The problem of aggregation and distance for analyses of accessibility and access opportunity in location - allocation models
AbstractThe acceptability of information stemming from analyses of accessibility and access opportunity for social, educational, and cultural infrastructure facilities largely depends on two factors: exactness and efficiency. Both of these factors are influenced by the data bases available for the analyses. This paper will focus on the problem of data requirements for spatial distributions of demand as well as on data requirements for spatial distances with respect to the exactness of the results of analyses and on the efficiency of preparing analyses. The effects of different levels of aggregation and of different types of distance measures are investigated.
