Calculating isochrones and accessibility with r5r

Some of you might remember that few months ago we released r5r, an R package for rapid realistic routing on multimodal transport networks. I’m glad to share we have a new paper paper introducing and demonstrating the r5r package, published open-access on the Findings journal. r5r logo

The paper talks about the routing algorithms behind R5, and demonstrates how r5r can be easily used to estimate travel time matrices, isochrones and accessibility on multimodal transport networks πŸš΄β€β™€οΈ πŸšΆβ€β™€οΈ πŸš… 🚌 πŸš— 🚑 The paper includes an .Rmarkdown file with code to reproduce the study.
