Top 10 Accessible Cities

The Top 10 Most Job Accessible Cities in the U.S. is an Esri map showing the U.S. cities with the most jobs accessible within 30 minutes of walking or public transit.

New York wins the prize for the most accessible jobs. If you use the thumbnail scroller running along the bottom of the map you can view the other top nine accessible cities. Each city includes a heat map layer showing where the most jobs are in the city. The map also shows heat maps for a number of other cities, outside of the top ten.

The map doesn't include an explanation of the data used. I'm assuming the heat maps are based on the number of jobs within walking distance times from the nearest transit stop.
