Supported Operating Systems *nix, macOS

Components of spatial_access :

spatial_access has two submodules:

  • p2p: Generate many to many matrices with travel times for sets of coordinates. Use drive, walk, bike, or transit network types, or get the distance in meters.
  • Models: Contains a suite of models for studying spatial accessibility to amenities.

To use this service as a ReST API, see:

If you are a Windows user, instructions for installing Ubuntu on a virtual machine are at the bottom of the Readme.


  1. brew install spatialindex (MacOS) or sudo apt-get install libspatialindex-dev (Ubuntu 16.04+)
  2. pip3 install spatial_access


See the iPython notebooks in docs/ for example usage.

Instructions for building locally (only for developers):

  • If updating Cython or C++ code (anything in spatial_access/adapters/ or spatial_access/src/) you must install cython
  • To regenerate .pyx files, from repository root run: cython --cplus spatial_access/adapters/*.pyx
  • To install locally, from repository root run: sudo python3 install

PyPi Maintenance

The package lives at:

When a branch is pulled into Master and builds/passes all unit tests, Travis CI will automatically deploy the build to PyPi.

Note: The version number in must be incremented from the last published version on PyPi, or it will be rejected.

To update PyPi access credentials, see .travis.yml and follow the instructions at to generate a new encrypted password.
