Baltic Sea Region Territorial Monitoring System

Accessibility potential by road


Indicator generated by accessibility model based upon a GIS road network dataset, a GIS NUTS-3 region layer and NUTS-3 region population figures.


The indicator is available in ESPON for three distinct years, 2001, 2006 and 2011 for entire ESPON space. Neighbouring countries are, however, not yet included.


Since changes in road networks take place slowly, a 5-year update interval for this indicator is justified.

Geographical scale

Data available at NUTS-3 level and higher.
