This map represents the distance to a hospital in Zeeland, the Netherlands. The 'catchment areas' are calculated with Flowmap.
With the help of Flowmap it is possible to calculate the decrease in accessibility when one of the hospitals is closed.
This map represents the travel flows through Zeeland in a situation with two ferries.
When the ferries are replaced with a tunnel, Flowmap can reassign the flows of people to the road network. Hence, this map represents the decrease in traffic.
However, when traffic decreases in a certain area, it logically will increase in another area. As can be seen in this map, the traffic now uses the tunnel.
Flowmap is a software package dedicated to analyzing and displaying interaction or flow data. This type of data is special in the sense that there are two different geographic locations connected to each data item: an origin location where the flow starts and an destination location where the flow ends. The flow data itself can consist of people (e.g. commuters, shoppers, hospital visitors), goods, usage of agricultural services or telecommunication and so on.
However, most thematic mapping and GIS packages have little functionality for treating this kind of information. Now Flowmap fills this gap. Flowmap is a PC software package (Windows 95/98/2000/ME/XP and will in most cases also work within Windows Vista and Windows 7), developed at the Faculty of Geosciences of the Utrecht University in the Netherlands.
