Identification of NUTS3 regions as inner periphery in Europeaccording to high travel times to regional centres (Delineation 1)
Theme(s): Territorial Structure - Territorial Structures and Land Use
In a first step, car travel times from each grid cell to the closest regional centre have been calculated. Then, these travel times have been standardized at the average of the neighbouring NUTS3 regions. Ater that, all areas with a standardized indicator values of > 150 were considered inner peripheries at grid level. These areas were overlaid with NUTS-3 regions to calculate the share of NUTS3 regions overlaid by IP. Eventually,all NUTS-3 regions have been identified as Inner Peripheires whose territory was overlaid by IPs by at least 50%; in addition to this threshold, NUTS-3 regions have also been identified as IP if they represent major IP patches at grid level, even if the overlaid proportion was less than 50%. Detailed information on the delineation method can be found in Annex Report 4 of the ESPON PROFECY Final Report.
