Time Filter Simple (Travel Time & Distance Matrix)anchor icon

Summaryanchor icon

This tool filters out which locations fall inside and outside of a travel time catchment area and groups them. It then calculates travel times from an origin to many destinations. It is possible to use this to create a travel time or distance matrix.

Only the key parameter fields are configurable. The more complex parameter fields (available in the Advanced tool) take standard, sensible values.

Departing vs Arrivinganchor icon

An Arriving search filters the Departure Locations – “*where can I set off from to reach my destination by a certain time?*”

A Departing search filters the Arrival Locations – “*where can I get to by leaving my origin at a certain time?*”

Things to noteanchor icon

If using a multi-point layer in the Locations field (i.e multiple origins from which to run the filter), the tool will mark a point from the Points to Filter layer as reachable if it is reachable from any of the origins; it does not need to be reachable from all of the origins.
