Travel Time Map Generator & Isochrones

Version: v4.164

What is a travel time map?

Our map tool allows you to create a 'How far can I go map' by transport mode and time limit. For example someone can ask how far can I drive from my home in 30 minutes. The tool outputs shapes, also known as a travel time isochrones visualise where's reachable. Sometimes these shapes are incorrectly labelled as a 'travel time radius map'. A radius is always just a circular shape, but a travel time shape is completely unique as it analyses all locations reachable using a specific mode of transport.

How to create a drive time radius map or other modes

  1. Select a start location
  2. Select a maximum travel time limit
  3. Select a mode of transport, for example driving
  4. Voila! There's your driving radius map
