Assessing Accessibility of Services and Infrastructure

The All-Island Research Observatory (AIRO) and ICLRD collaborated with the Strategic Investment Board (SIB) in Northern Ireland to develop a methodology for identifying a baseline inventory of service infrastructure in Northern Ireland. This pilot project produced a series of accessibility maps for specific services within Northern Ireland using Geographical Information System (GIS). The research team also collecting data to extend the analysis on a cross-border basis where compatible data exists.

SIB sponsored this work in its efforts to introduce evidence based modeling into infrastructure planning in Northern Ireland.
