A large body of literature supports the use of two-step floating catchment area (2SFCA) methods in measuring healthcare accessibility. Although there are many studies that utilise these tools it is difficult for the non-expert to be able to perform these calculations, and as such there is a need for free and open source software (FOSS) solutions. This paper describes usability issues surrounding the development of such open source tools and their application in a number of different policy scenarios. Applied to data concerning the provision of static and mobile cancer services in Wales, these tools are used to test the suitability of alternative locations for the provision of such services in relation to the potential demand for cancer services
