I would like to recreate for cities in my country the maps represented here, using ArcMap. On the same site I found the calculations, but I don't really know how to recreate those tables.

After looking on google I found this(https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=4d26b2e2671e4939af83a1519b578c98) nice thing, but again, i do not know how to apply the calculations for other places.

I found something similar on gis stack but it's not cost related, it's time related. I cannot post the link because I do not have enough reputation. If you'll search for Travel time calculator QGIS, I'm sure you'll find it.

I am not new to ArcGIS, but in this particular I didn't find any relevant info for my problem. Please provide some pointers.

I think you would need to use the cost distance analysis tool. You can find more details here:



The pro documentation is similar to the ArcGIS 10 documentation, however appears much clearer to me. You can find the ArcGIS 10 documentation here: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/Cost_Distance/009z00000018000000/ Should also note that this feature is in ArcGIS 9.x and 10.x so you should be able to undertake it regardless.

  • You are citing documentation from ArcGIS Pro here when I suspect the asker is using the ArcGIS 10.x architecture instead. – PolyGeo Mar 16 '16 at 22:32
  • True but this is more about how it is calculated and what it is, which would apply to ArcGIS 10.x and 9.x. Here is the 10.x documentation, but no where near as helpful in terms of explaining what it is and how it works. help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/index.html#/… – Liam G Mar 16 '16 at 22:41
  • Perhaps you can improve your answer by editing it to show why you made the decision to use the Pro documentation. I know that I would upvote it then. – PolyGeo Mar 16 '16 at 22:49
