Time Filter Simple (Travel Time & Distance Matrix)
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.
|Departure Locations||The point layer to be used as the departure locations||Picklist|
|Travel Mode||Method of transport||Picklist|
|Time Zone||Time zone||Picklist|
|Departing / Arriving||Whether the chosen time will be for departing or arriving (see below)||Picklist|
|Departing / Arriving Time||The departure or arrival time. This will get updated as per the time zone selected.||Calendar Format - dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm|
|Travel time||The maximum journey time (in minutes)||Text|
|Arrival Locations||The point layer to be used as the arrival locations||Picklist|
|Output Layer||Where to save the output layer – NB must be saved into the project Geodatabase||Folder connection|
Departing vs Arriving
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 note
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.
