Title Landscape fragmentation
Alternate Title Road Density of All Roads [74]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract The indicator shows the road length for each Alpine municipality and makes it clear that traffic infrastructure depends on different locational factors: location in the main valleys, average altitude, geomorphology (passes), slope inclination, but also population density and economic infrastructure and development. Two road density maps have been selected for this atlas: map 84 shows the major roads, map 85 all types of roads, from motorways down to ‘local roads of minor importance’. The length was taken from Tele Atlas.
