Theatres screens' accessibility

This series of maps is designed to compare the supply of theaters and screens as a function of population density (in 2001). These maps are available in KML (viewable with Google Earth). The polygons representing service areas are made based on the number of available screens within a five minutes car drive, under ideal conditions (this analysis was performed using the service area analysis, in ArcGIS). The results show neighborhoods where the number of theater available within 5 minutes is less than (blue) - or higher than (red) - would suggest the population density. These results were discussed in a paper published in the Cahiers de géographie du Québec (Caquard, Naud and Périchon 2009).
