New 'Job Access Map' at Work in New Haven, Connecticut
The DataHaven Data Blog shares news of the Jobs Access map, produced by the Regional Plan Association (RPA). Here's how the post describes the new map: "The interactive tool also allows you to look at where you can get to by car, public transportation, or bike, not to mention filter by travel time, desired industry, and worker education level."
As an example of the data one might find while employing the functions of the map: "From the New Haven Green, you can walk to about 90,000 jobs within an hour commute. From the Milford Green, you can walk to about 16,000. From the Branford Green? About 3,000."
DataHaven also reports that its already putting the tool to use: "Using the same data sets as those used in the RPA’s map, DataHaven is currently involved in a small study (reported here) that has us mapping transit and job patterns for the entire Greater New Haven region."
