DEFINITION

What is a distance table?

A distance table shows the driving distance over streets from one or more origins to one or more destinations. A distance table is useful for finding out how far customers are willing to drive to a store and nearest store alternatives. A distance table is also useful to determine which students in a city are eligible to use a school bus. A distance table is typically a matrix where the origins are shown in the first column and the destinations are shown in the first row. The distance from any origin to a destination is shown where the row and column intersect.
