What is an Isochrone?
Isochrone maps or travel time maps, are maps that help you identify the area that can be reached within within a specific time range by a specified mode of transport (walking, biking, driving).They are most used to depict travel times from a start location. The isochrone joins all the points that can be reached using the street network and highlights the area accessible from the starting point. This map is helpful to understand how many facilities, parks, shops or landmarks fall within a given travel distance.
