Originally developed by Andrew Nelson at the Joint Research Centre (JRC) for the World Bank’s World Development Report in 2009, the Global Accessibility Map has been extensively used by the Malaria Atlas Project (MAP) at the University of Oxford and others in the health community. Together with the JRC, MAP has recreated this Global Map of Accessibility using updated datasets and Earth Engine, Google’s global scale remote sensing analysis platform. MAP, JRC, and the Earth Engine team are also collaborating to produce an online system that will allow users to make custom accessibility maps for their own point datasets. The updated Global Accessibility Map and accessibility tool are coming soon.
