Geomarker Methods

drive time

This container uses isochrones to assign drive time to care center for each input address. Drive time isochrones are concentric polygons, in which each point inside a polygon has the same drive time to the care center. Below is an example of drive time isochrones around Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Drive time isochrones were obtained from openroute service.


Euclidean distance between input address and care center in meters. This distance does not take into account driving routes, but rather provides an overall metric for how far a participant lives from their care center.
