Abstract

This paper draws on a new database of gymnastics facilities, the use of Two-Step Floating Catchment Area (E2SFCA) techniques, to measure potential accessibility for both private and public transport networks using a web-based tool to collect the network distances for the transport. Plans to incorporate both the public and private networks into a multi-modal approach are outlined, along with open-source web-based solutions to visualise the dataset and results, highlighting the role multi-modal accessibility GIS-based approaches can have an influence on creating future investments and decision making within planning processes of sport facilities
