What does reachfactor mean and how is it calculated?
Perfect! And any information on how it is calculated?
Basically it’s the isochrones proportion of a circle generated with a mean speed for the specific profile.
Mean values per profile are:
|profile||mean speed (km/h)|
If you have a 10 min isochrone for car you would have a radius of 360 * 600 m for the circle the isochrone is compared to.
It’s area would therefore be: (216000)^2 * pi
Then divide the actual 10 min isochrone area by this value and you have your reachfactor.
