### Method 1:

Method 1 An Overview of Methods in Transport Geography

### Models in Transport Geography:

Models in Transport Geography Distance (Impedance) Accessibility Spatial Interactions / Routing Transportation / Land Use Models Complexity Data Requirements

### Method 2:

Method 2 The Notion of Accessibility

### Relationship between Distance and Opportunities:

Relationship between Distance and Opportunities Distance Opportunities Low density Medium density High density

### Topological and Contiguous Accessibility:

a b d c f g e Topological and Contiguous Accessibility Least Most Topological Contiguous

### Accessibility and Spatial Structure:

### Method 3:

Method 3 The Route Selection Process

### The Traveling Salesperson Problem:

The Traveling Salesperson Problem 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 2 3 4 5 6 15 km 10 km 8 km 15 km 9 km 5 km Total = 62 km 8 km 9 km 5 km 10 km 8 km 8 km Total = 48 km

### Cost Minimization and Efficiency Maximization:

Cost Minimization and Efficiency Maximization Low High Costs Efficiency Low High Compromise

### Effect of Transport Costs on Route Selection:
