Data Journalism WebApp about Accessibility in Sweden according to Corona Travel Recommendations

Sveriges Television AB (the public Swedish television company) has published a data journalism WebApp showing how far one can travel according to the recommendations from the Swedish Public Health Authority. Of course the safest recommendation is not to travel at all during the corona crises – but if one absolutely has to, shorter trips of up to two hours drive from the place of residence are valid according to recommendations from the Swedish Public Health Authority.

In the WebApp users can click on the map or search for a city and get an animated visualisation about the 2 hour isochrones (travel times) from the center of the postal area. The calculation shows how far one can get within two hours of lawful driving. The data is from OpenStreetMap and the interactive isochrone calculations are made using OpenRouteService.

Keep your distance and happy summer!
