Hello
I used to think the way ATCO-CIF data was divided up geographically was based on a some kind of commonly used administrative boundary like Counties (with unitary authorities seperate) or Districts. However, I am working with Oct 2010 data and it isn't immediately clear to me what PT data I should be including in my calculation as I wish to carry out calculations for three sites. In terms of county boundaries, all of the sites sit within Milton Keynes, though one is close to the border with Bedfordshire. In terms of district boundaries, two of the sites sit within Milton Keynes, one is close to the border with Mid Bedfordshire, whilst one site is in Aylesbury Vale.

Do you think I should only use Milton Keynes PT data, or also include data for Buckinghamshire, and Bedford (which I assume is for Bedfordshire) to get an overall measure of accessibility from these sites?

Does anyone know a link to a map, or better still a boundary file for the local transport authorities the ATCO-CIF data is split up into?

Regards

Hi MJ,
I believe the areas were split into counrty, district council boundaries. You can find out some more details on them here.

From this list and using the free OS Boundary Line data you should then be able to work out the boundaries?

I personally would load in all the possible ATCO areas, better safe than sorry!
