Kilometer radius maps

To create a kilometer radius map, draw a straight line from a starting point and use this straight line to draw a circle. The km radius map below was made using our km radius map tool. It shows a 5km radius map from the centre of Paris.

Creating a km radius map allows you to see locations that are reachable within 5 kilometers. What it doesn’t show them is how long it will take to reach those locations.

Kilometer radius maps assume that we are travelling as the crow flies. But transport networks, mode of transport and the time of day can affect journey times. That’s why our kilometer radius map tool also allows you to search by travel time.

Let’s use the same example as before - a 5km radius map from the centre of Paris. The image below shows a travel time shape (an isochrone) layered on to the kilometer radius map. The user can now see where is reachable within 30 minutes by public transport, as well as locations within 5km.
