1963 (1966, 1972) A simple method to show the ‘effort’ necessary for the city dweller in Paris to use the city network efficiently. The ‘effort’ value defines each particular site as the starting point for all errands in the city, rating from 22 up to over 36 minutes. The map may change according to the time of day or season. If made available in an information system, people can make the decision which path to follow, based on the actual situation. This method was worked out for Paris (France) and later for Stuttgart (Germany)
