AccessMod now runs under Docker, either through 1) the Virtual machine (as before), 2) a dedicated launcher application, or 3) directly through Docker installed on the user machine. Possibility to go back to previous versions. Possibility to use the "Knight's move" for the cost-distance analysis. Possibility to generate a cost-allocation raster in the accessibility analysis. Zonal statistics can be done for several travel time at once. Faster analyses and better responsiveness. A command-line version of accessMod ("Replay" mode) is available. Updates of most librairies in the stack, many improvements under the hood and bug corrections.
